"We struggle with authenticity because we fear rejection. We want the world to see us at our very best, because then people are more likely to accept and possibly even admire us. Maybe we don't need to try so hard or hide any of our blemishes. Maybe people will like us just the way we are. It's even possible they'll be more drawn to us if they know some of our failings and struggles. They could say, 'I'm like that too. I have the same issues. I'm glad to know there are two of us.' ...Getting to the end of me means I'm not worried about performing for others anymore. Getting to the end of me means I'm no longer interested in faking it, because I understand that God is looking for the real me."
