Why it is important
The more we act authentically, the more likely we will be happy and experience subjective and psychological well-being. Authentic people have higher levels of life satisfaction. Couples who struggle with their own authenticity unconsciously conspire toward an inauthentic relationship.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
