Guidepost #1: Cultivate Authenticity – Let go of what people think

guidepost-1-andrea-leda.jpeg

After diving into all three books by Brene Brown I realized that The Gifts of Imperfection is the perfect companion to the work I do around the effect stress, anxiety, and feeling like enough have on loving your body and living a fulfilling life. To share in these gifts I am writing about a guidepost a week from the book for the next 10 weeks and how to embrace each one. I will also gift a journal prompt with each guidepost for you to use. I love this book and encourage you to pick up a copy!

Guidepost #1: Cultivate Authenticity – Let go of what people think

What does worrying about what other people think do to you? It doesn’t feel good does it? Most of the time we don’t’ actually know what other people think but instead we react to what we assume most others are thinking. Assumptions like, “She must think I’m stupid”, “He doesn’t care about me”, “She probably thinks I’m ungrateful”, “He is disappointed in me” and so on.

But what if you cultivated authenticity and let go of all the assumptions? You might feel lighter, how else would you feel? Letting go of what people think also means letting go of your own judgments about yourself. In today’s journal exercise I encourage you to tap into what those judgments are. You can ask yourself questions like - what am I afraid of and what am I avoiding? Reach out if you need any support!
