One of the life learning in life has been Be Yourself. I keep sermonizing this to everyone. Authenticity is what keeps us going in the long run, not mask or lipstick.

I have seen many relationships falling apart because of the lack of authenticity. Employees join with a promise, serve something else. People get married just to know they are living with a different partner. At the same time animosity grows within partners in tough times.

If one thing we could share, teach our loved ones is authenticity. I know we will not be liked by the most and a few will stay with us, the bond will be stronger.
