Scariness of authenticity

If you want to be your “authentic” self, says Jason Seiden, you’re going to spend some sleepless nights in a cold sweat.

“It’s not possible to find your true self without getting tested, and tested hard. Life is strong—when you go to bend it to your will, it fights the hell back. It bites, claws, kicks, and it doesn’t give up until you wrestle it to the ground and prove to it that you won’t quit for anything. The closer you get to your authentic self, the more gut-wrenching and terrifying the tests feel, too.”
