You Can’t Be YOURSELF!

african artist

  • You are what you say.
    You are what you do.
    You are how you feel.
    And everything you do, say, and feel is a result of what you are getting out the deal.

What do I mean?

I mean there is a pay off for how you behave:
Attention, sympathy, validation, love, money etc..
You would not be what you are without an audience to provide an exchange for your performance.

And if it’s a pleasant reaction, if it makes you feel good, you will do it over and over and over again.
So what am I saying here?
I’m saying that there is no such thing as authenticity.

There is no such thing as the True Self.
If no one was watching you or interacting with you, you wouldn’t be what you are right now.

If you were stranded on a deserted island suddenly, you’d quickly become a new person because there would be no one around to be what you are for.

That said, you are like quantum physics that says the atom particle behaves differently when it’s being observed.
You are living your life as an actor on a stage, making motions to shock people or to make men think sexual thoughts about you.

Am I Black Enough?
Art by Salkis Re

You have a sense of your value based on your interactions with people. You can’t quantify or validate your own worth outside of the presence of others.
Seems grim but it’s not really.
All this means is that you have Card Blanche and full authority to create a persona deliberately. You get to decide what qualities get activated or deactivated within you.

You now understand that permission to BE is not going to fall in your lap, and no one is capable of granting it to you. They can only interact with you based on what they feel and you let them based on what you think you will experience and the value you think you will receive from them.

Don’t BE yourself, CREATE yourself!
