thoughts from my mind to yours

Truth of the heart

Often, the truth of the heart
remains unspoken…
it hides in the quiet corners of the mind
as an abstract distraction
seeking solace
inside the thoughts
that offer some understanding
to the chaos.

Authenticity in the Age of Social Media – Share your thoughts…

image copyright neha 2019

Hello Everyone,

I have recently come across multiple posts and videos that talk about “being your true authentic self” from celebrities and non celebrities alike. Although I believe in the sentiment, I find the term to be overused and often misrepresented by individuals simply trying to be part of a fad. “Speak your truth” and “be yourself” have become popular tags than authentic sentiments. I find it to be an irony and want to know what your thoughts are on the matter. Genuineness is such an appealing quality and something that I always look for in people…it has become harder to find under the veil of social media. Would love to hear you out in comments and perhaps compile a follow-up post with some of your thoughts on the matter. Please include your blog url to be considered. There is no deadline for participation yet, I will close comments once I feel we have reached a substantial number. Please be professional with your words, rude or hateful comments will be removed.

 

Thank you and hope to see you all participate in the discussion!

 

Happy Friday!
