Every decision we make is based on our “distinctives” — child focused, church based, Christ centered and committed to integrity. But do we actually live up to this?
I don’t think it’s possible to be authentic without being transparent.
By consciously withholding something or avoiding a subject because I fear a reaction – anger, rejection, judgment, etc., I’m not being authentic. I’m being manipulative.
Choosing what to share and what not to share is lying by omission, and it’s not being transparent or authentic.
