How many of us are just acting our way through life, adapting to different settings like chameleons?
Situational elasticity lends its hand to the collaborative truth, that people inject each other with signaling serum. The slightest twang, the tinkle of dimples, the cleanest tucked-in shirt, belt, and Prada shoes – we try to demonstrate to others ‘this is who I am and this what I do.’
We should follow the route that builds up the most confidence. We just can’t expect a return on a relationship should we switch off and snuggle with our natural impulsiveness.
Authenticity can lack self-control. The edited self is known to burn out, slip, and go off-script.
