‘Self Inflicted’ – Counting down.
Authenticity is honesty with self:
“The lies that are devastating to our self-esteem are not so much the lies we tell, but the lies we live. We live a lie when we misrepresent the truth of our Being, or if we misrepresent the reality of our experience.”
From a chapter on living authentically in the book How to Raise Your Self-Esteem by: Nathaniel Branden
