To Be Authentic

I am not trying to be different, absolutely no interest in that.
To be an authentic person,
To be a real person,
To be able to somehow integrate your world,
Your internal world,
And the world around you,
And that has to be one of the most difficult things for human beings.
If I am talking to my boys, that would be the first conversation.

This is the difficulty in growing up.
How do you maintain some authenticity of your person,
Including finding out who you are, by the way,
Because there is no authentic person,
You build your own history,
You live in you brain,
You invent who you are.
And matching that with the world, especially this world, today?
Tough one.
