Are there times that you feel completely comfortable with who you are? Like you’ve really tapped into the true you? Are there people you love being with or things you love to do that make you feel like you’re being the real YOU?
That’s what being Authentically You is all about
Truly being yourself feels so good, but in a world with so many voices telling you who you should be, it can be hard to hang on to the real you. So often we find ourselves comparing to others, trying to live up to things that we think we “should” do, or seeking approval from everyone around us.
I’m here to help you see the ways that you are letting others dictate who you are and what you’re worth so that you can more fully embrace who you really are.
We all do it (let others define us), but as you begin to see the ways you’re doing that and challenge them, you’ll be able to become truer to you.
As you become more comfortable with who you are and free from who others tell you to be, you’ll be able to connect with the people you love more easily, feel more comfortable in your own skin, and find more happiness in your life.
I’m Amber…a wife and mom of 4 boys and someone who has struggled with letting others define who I am too. (Like I said, we all do it.)
A few years ago, I took a good look at myself, saw some of the ways I was doing this, and started to challenge them. I can’t tell you how much happier I am now.
I feel more at peace with who I am (though just like for everyone else, it’s always a challenge), my relationship with my husband has never been better, and I’ve been able to stretch myself and challenge my own growth in many ways.
Because I’m so passionate about this subject, I went back to school and graduated with a master’s degree in Marriage, Family and Human Development (20 years after getting my bachelor’s in Social Work).
I’m now working on my doctorate and my research centers around exactly this…ways that we allow other people to define who we are and how that hinders our emotional intimacy, our happiness in relationships (including sex), and our overall joy in life.
I’m excited to help you on this journey too because I know how good it feels to make this kind of progress.
Take a look at what this looks like to begin to challenge yourself and become more comfortable with who you are.
