How Authentic Are You Really when You Write?

Keeping your own personality when you write stories is very special. Be a Cheeto while the rest of the planet is full of Fruit Loops.

Are You Confident Enough?

I am using one of Oscar Wilde’s quotes “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken,” as it shows how people should basically be themselves, or to put it another way, just be authentic.

On the other hand, I must admit, I don't often see people having the confidence to say how they really feel and rarely express their true personality. Wisdom then is the art of avoiding all thoughts that weaken you and we do this, by meeting God on his platform, namely the realm of the human mind where we find authentic wisdom, which is the ability to shift those thoughts that weaken us.

Above All, Be Meaningful

Generally people are not confident enough to say something or do something because of the fact that they are usually too concerned of what people would think or say. If you are not confident enough, you are unable to live out your deepest desires, passions as well as your beliefs, it is however never easy to do. When we use our minds to empower us, we instantly appeal to that which raises and uplifts our spirits.

Simply Imagine!

Having the dedication and courage to acknowledge and be proud of one’s embarrassments, feelings, emotions, dreams, desires and beliefs, is the most liberating experience imaginable. This new found freedom existing inside everyone is most important. Simply being yourself will lead to your life being more enlightening, exciting, fulfilling, and above all, meaningful.

We do so, when we come to the full realization, that we can never give away what we do not have! This man, and 16 million others, all imagine a time and place when only good rules supreme. Listen with energized ears, to John Lennon singing "Imagine".

You Lack The Confidence To Say Hello

Evidence of this is shown among High school males having feelings for girls although they seldom have the confidence to express their feelings.

For example, you found an intelligent and beautiful girl whom you find attractive but you don’t feel yourself good enough for her. So you decide to try and become more attractive. Perhaps you try working out more, in spite of the fact that you are not that into sports.

In conclusion, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken,” it explains that you should be authentic and to do so, you need to acknowledge and appreciate your real-feelings, thoughts, emotions, passions, desires, beliefs and yes even your embarrassments.

Needed reminder, thanks TP.

Sometimes, we ourselves do not know who we are, what we want - just confused to express our feelings. I try to be authentic as soon as I know how I feel, what I want - siva

I don't speak English but speak a vastly different language called Afrikaans, a kind of Dutch or Flemish, Just relax and do it. "Hindsight, is always the clearest critic." Thank you for reading my post.

Thank you for sharing your article. I enjoyed reading it. I'm almost positive that I'm the only one that writes like I do. It's unique to say the least but my goal is to make people smile. I think I'm succeeding.

1st November 2016 (#) Hi , Thank you for being on my readers list. I have been searching for about 2 years for a write for cash site which works as easily as wikinut and pays like Bubblews did in their heyday! One of our wikinutters, passed this information on to me of a brand new cash writing site which is similar to Bubblews and it pays its writers for original work. I joined and find their pay system very rewarding.
If you could use a few extra dollars like I do, and would like more details please join here:
or here:

Kindest regards,

Andre' (Tranquilpen)
PS: Many wikinut and Bubblews writing community are already there!
