555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 46.
Time Awake: 10:17 a.m.
Sometimes people fight with you for no discernible reason. Sometimes people create scenarios and make up stories, and act upon them for whatever personal gain they have in mind. Sometimes those actions impede on a work environment or a personal life.
In those times, it helps to have someone around who knows you, who can say, that doesn’t sound like you — or in my case, “That doesn’t sound like Mike.” And then the person can have your back in whatever the situation entails. The situation can then be resolved or at least dealt with.
I had such a person because I always present myself as myself. You always get Me, every time you see me or interact with me. This is Me, authentically being Me.
I don’t present myself authentically to gain allies to have my back. Rather, I live authentically because that’s the way I prefer. I enjoy being myself and sharing the experience of myself with the world.
I am thankful to Carol for having my back today and recognizing who I am, despite a story told. And I continue to be Myself, every day, Living authentically.
