This is an interview with Sandra Guy who has an acupuncture practice in Amsterdam. We collaborate together when a client is recovering from burn-out as acupuncture helps the energy flow in he body. We had a chat about authenticity and the effect on our wellbeing
Eva: What does authenticity mean to you?
Sandra: Authenticity is about living in a way that is true for you. When you are authentic you allow yourself to feel what you feel and accept it, rather than putting on a mask and pretending you feel something else. Authenticity is not about being happy all the time or about being seen to be happy. And it’s not about being right or wrong or in control. Authenticity is acknowledging what is real for you at a given moment and embracing that, even when it feels uncomfortable.
