The Not Your Average Lives Podcast

The Reasons We Put On A Personality Mask And The Consequences Of Doing So

January 22, 2021

EP87: In this episode I talk about some of the reasons why we may wear a mask and hide from our authentic self:

  • We want to please others.
  • We adapt to a certain situation or expectation to be accepted.
  • We don't want to rock the boat or ruffle any feathers.

I also share the consequences of living inauthentically such as:

  • Health issues
  • Lack of motivation
  • Loss of energy
  • Negative energy/vibes
  • Lack of passion
  • Bad attitude
  • Negative impact on relationships with loved ones

I referenced a past episode where I talked about this with personality expert, Alex Paulos. You can find that fascinating conversation in Episode 57.
