Finding the courage to be yourself is an amazing thing. For many, finding that courage is a process. It can take learning new skills and tools to better understand your mental health in order to feel comfortable with yourself.

Mental health issues can be complex, and at times it can be challenging to fully understand why you are struggling with what you are struggling with. Work with a mental health professional to begin the healing and learning process. Here are a few tips for being your authentic self as you start that journey.

Be Vulnerable

Being vulnerable can be scary. When you are vulnerable, you have the possibility of getting hurt or feeling strong emotions that you may not be used to feeling. Work to understand your challenges with vulnerability and the origins of those challenges. When you can understand the root cause of your struggles, it can be enlightening and helpful in better understanding your mental health as a whole.

Speak Up

If you feel something or think something, speak up and say it. Learning to stand up for yourself is incredibly powerful and life-changing. Start small and watch your growth and change as you begin to learn how to feel comfortable speaking up.

Set Boundaries

Set boundaries that help you to feel comfortable. If certain activities or relationships make you shrink away from being yourself, then those things need deeper consideration and thought. If something does not bring you growth, comfort, or positivity, it may not be suitable for your journey.

Pursue Your Passions

What have you always wanted to do? Where have you always wanted to go? Give thought to what your long-term goals are and how you are going to accomplish them. Living authentically means pursuing what makes you truly happy and not fulfilling the goals that other people may want for you. Figure out what you want in life, and make those dreams come true.

Discovering how to lead an authentic lifestyle can be amazing and powerful. It is something that can also be extremely challenging to accomplish. Work on being vulnerable and feeling all of the emotions you are experiencing. Setting boundaries and pursuing your passions can also help you be authentically yourself.
