Living Free And Being Your Authentic Unique Self

A Harvard study has proved that embracing community helps us live longer, and be happier…

Over the years, researchers have studied the participants’ health trajectories and their broader lives, including their triumphs and failures in careers and marriage, and the findings have produced startling lessons, not only for the researchers.

“The surprising finding is that our relationships and how happy we are in our relationships have a powerful influence on our health,” said Robert Waldinger, director of the study, a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. “Taking care of your body is important, but tending to your relationships is a form of self-care too. That, I think, is the revelation.”

It's hard to know who you are and what you want in life.

You may have tried to figure it out by looking at what your friends are into, or by following the latest trends, but that's not always enough.

Follow your intense curiosity. This is the voice inside of you that speaks up when you see something interesting or when an idea pops into your head. It's the thing that makes you excited and passionate, and it's a strong indicator of who you truly are.

It's hard to know what we're supposed to do with our lives.

We all feel lost at some point in our lives. We don't know what we're supposed to do next or where we're supposed to go.

Your intense curiosity is the strongest indicator of your authentic self. Don’t ignore it.

Follow your intense curiosity. That is the voice of your authentic self, trying to get through to you. What are you intensely curious about? That is your truth, and it will guide you on your path.
