Window Dressing Living

My question to you today is, “Are you living a life authentic”? If not, why? We see most people through the curtains of Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and their thousands of followers.

What people want more than ever is not how to grow thousands of followers, get rich quick schemes, or how to go on vacations for cheap. They want someone to be true to them. Someone to say, I struggle with low self-esteem, I don’t have it all together, I grapple with chronic pain, I have a child with an addiction, and I’m amassing financial woes. Can you help or give me advice?

What are curtains? They keep you from seeing what’s inside. If you live a window dressing life, you are hiding your true self. You are living a closed-off inauthentic life. People are not detecting the true you or what you may have to offer.

If we can’t be authentic with our fellow humans, how can we make the world a better place for our future generations? We all have faults, failures, lumps, and bumps. You and I need someone to commiserate and be honest enough to explain struggle.

So many teens and adults idolize stars. When they find out they struggle like the everyday individual, they are downtrodden and in shock. But, just because they have “made it” does not mean you are exempt from everyday problems. The stars were once a person just like you and me with a 9 to 5 struggling to pay a mortgage, car note, and put groceries on the table.

I challenge you today to start being authentic! If you see someone struggling, be gracious and kind and try to help. You may not be their answer, but you can listen and be their encouragement to make the tough road ahead.
