      Private notes on 'authenticity'

      If you are authentic and genuine you are true to your self.

      The more we act authentically, the more likely we will be happy and experience subjective and psychological well-being[1][2]. Authentic people have higher levels of life satisfaction[3]. Couples who struggle with their own authenticity unconsciously conspire toward an inauthentic relationship[4].
