Last month at (in)courage, I wrote about when you want to be known. After I wrote that post, I’ve thought a lot about the word authenticity. It seems like there are as many definitions of what it means as there are people in the world. I tend to think of it as saying what you think, always being the same person no matter the situation, being honest, verbalizing your opinions. But what about if you are a contemplative person? Someone who takes a while to figure out what she thinks about things? I never could have been on a debate team: I don’t think fast enough. Today at (in)courage, I’m circling around this topic again, considering community when being authentic means shutting your mouth. Join me there?
