I had an epiphany that forced me to rethink my own congruency. We all have a persona, a self that we present to the world, the existence. If we continuously drift into a state of incongruence where we believe we are our persona and lose track of who we are on the inside, we discard a part of our real self.
When this occurs, we start to lose the ability to choose what we express. We end up living in a shallower existence in something like autopilot.
I started posting content over a year ago with the intention of providing value to others. Those posts weren’t for likes, followers, or reposts. However, I found myself cycling though content rather than contributing on a deeper and connecting level.
Someone close to me reminded me of the importance of being intentional. Concede to a work in process, flawed in many ways, and embracing my authenticity.
