Choosing authenticity is not an easy choice. E. E. Cummings wrote, "To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself-- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight- and never stop fighting." "Staying real" is one of the most courageous battles that we'll ever fight.
