If you haven’t yet, you need to subscribe to Ean Floyd’s podcast, Love and Sensibility.
In his first episode, he interviewed me about authenticity. Ean and I wanted to clear up the biggest mistake we see people make when they start a new relationship: faking it!
Let me be clear; I am NOT a relationship expert.
What I specialise in is making life more successful through authentic strategies, i.e. just being yourself. I know without any doubt that this is the most enjoyable way to live.
Therefore, when starting a new relationship or friendship, I only start with honesty. It wasn’t always this way. I used to wait YEARS before showing people the Real Me. I had a subconscious fear of abandonment that I didn’t even want to admit to myself. Authenticity and honesty were the tools I used to eventually overcome this fear.
Now all relationships in my life are built on solid foundations of honesty and integrity.
In this interview we discuss:
– why being fake to impress someone always backfires
– the benefits of starting out honest
– understanding why being dishonest brings low quality people into your life.
This and much more, including some wild tales from my time rehabilitating psychopaths (well, trying to anyway).
