Aside

On Authenticity

25 Nov

Is authenticity overrated? 

What it authenticity?

Verbally saying what we think – unfiltered?

Or,

Acting on any impulses – that we may or may not, have tried to cage within?

When one talks about authenticity,

One would ask,

How good of a virtue is self-control?

Say I don’t like a person,

And I want to hurt that person.

Should I then:

Apply self-control and not hurt that person (and probably be, say, a hypocrite)

Or, 

follow my instinct and just lash it out because that’s what I want to do. 

Where should we draw the line?

Is authenticity overrated?

Or is it simply misinterpreted, or misunderstood?
