How tired are you of being told to “just be authentic”?
The whole “authenticity” thing has become pretty repetitive (and annoying)
You could turn it into a game with your Instagram feed. Every post you see asking you to be authentic, take a vitamin C shot.
On second thought, don’t play that game. You may not recover.
Joking aside, there’s a reason it won’t go away.
I think the internet, in some sense, made it incredibly difficult to be authentic.
It’s all too easy to curate a specific persona online, isn’t it? The result is you almost lose touch with who you are.
I think, to some extent, we’re all guilty of this.
You’re put in a position where you pick and choose the parts of your identity you’ll share online.
In other words, you set out to curate “perfection” -- you purposely intend to position yourself in a specific way, for reasons that may be very personal to you.
