Stop telling me to be “be authentic”
Being “authentic” is so hard to embody as asians and mixed race folks. We are multidimensional and so good at shape shifting. So good that our true selves get lost in the shuffle.
This is why healing work is so important to me. Through healing work and parts work, we can begin to see who we are in real time. When we pull apart our protective strategies from our true selves, we have compassion on ourselves.
