Real Is Rare

7 Traits Of Truly Authentic People

Before I get into the traits of authentic people, I want to start by describing what an "authentic person" is. Authentic people don't care about fads or trends. They dance to the beat of their own drum instead of following the crowd.

Are you still searching for your life purpose? You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you!

That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.

They are the same person in every situation and don't change who they are based on who they're with or what they're doing. They're genuine and original.

So, why isn't everyone authentic? One reason is fear. Fear of what someone will think of them.

Fear that they won't be liked or accepted or popular if they do, or don't do, something. Fear that people will make fun of them or think they're weird or stupid.

Another reason is for self-gain. Think about the salesman who puts on a big act to convince you that what they're selling is the best thing since sliced bread.

Or the manipulator who is nice to you until they get what they want, then they leave you.

If you would like to be a more authentic person yourself, start incorporating these 7 traits into your life:

1. Indulge in your curiosities

Be curious about things you are told. Be curious about what you hear and see. Don't accept anything as the "one and only truth."

Don't be the lemming that blindly follows just because it's what your parents or your friends believe.

Do your own research before deciding what you believe. Stay curious about others and about yourself.

2. Speak your mind

You're hurting yourself if you are holding back what you want to say because you're afraid of the reaction you'll get.

You need to speak your truths and be heard. This doesn't mean that you need to always say how you feel, especially when it will be hurtful to someone else.

Rather, find one space where you can honestly and openly communicate. Maybe it's a journal, maybe it's a close friend, or maybe it's a support group.

I personally am a big fan of writing, support groups, and coffee dates with friends!

3. Spend time alone

Spending time alone is a great way to get to know yourself – your feelings, your thoughts and your beliefs.

When we are constantly surrounding ourselves with other people, it is nearly impossible to know what our own beliefs are.

So, make time for yourself. Meditate. Go for walks by yourself. Get to know yourself by being with yourself.

4. Accept the fact that not everyone will like you

You don't like everyone you meet for one reason or another. Conversely, not everyone who meets you will like you.

So, stop trying to be everyone's friend by being a chameleon who changes colors depending on your environment.

It's impossible to make everyone like you. So, stop trying and just be yourself!

5. Know what's motivating you

This is something that authentic people do on a regular basis. If you don't understand your motive for doing something, your ego can run amok.

Authentic people ask this question of themselves: Is our motivation one that is true to who we are, or is it ruled by a need for approval? So, check in with what your motivation is often.

6. Listen to your gut

If something feels wrong, there's a reason. If something doesn't feel right, there's probably some truth to that. Our bodies are intelligent and can sense when something isn't right for us.

Pay attention to your gut feelings and trust that your intuition is onto something.

7. Never apologize for who you are

Authentic people don't apologize for who they are. We are the person we were created to be.

When we apologize for who we are or what we love, we send the message to ourselves, and to others, that we are not something is wrong with us and we need to be "fixed."

So, don't apologize for the fact that you like purple hair, or you like to wear boots in the summer, or you need to be alone sometimes.

Who you are is who you are…and it's beautiful at times, chaotic at times, and more often than not, both.

This is the first step of all relationships but it remains on a shallow level. It's usually a fine line between lust and love and infatuation never usually makes it past the lust and into a meaningful connection. Yet, infatuation is often disguised as love and can be confusing.

The more both parties are physically attracted to each other, the more they want to spend all of their time together and move a relationship really quickly from the get-go. However, this kind of relationship is usually short-lived. When relationships get too intense, too quickly, they don't tend to take the time to build a solid enough foundation to grow on, and many of the red flags just get brushed off only to come back later.

Do you want to learn a secret technique anyone can master that will make someone fall in love with you?

This is usually the second stage of a relationship. Once we decide that we are attracted enough to someone, we become open to getting to know them better. From there, the more we get to know them, the more feelings are developed based on what we know. This is still an introductory stage to relationships, because the more layers are peeled, the higher the risk of finding some sort of dealbreaker that ends the relationship there.

During this stage either feelings will develop closer to love, and increase passion or commitment, or they will eventually fade and grow closer to a friendship It all depends on shared values, interests, and needs.

Empty Love

This is a tricky kind of relationship. On one hand, it is an exclusive relationship with an agreed-upon commitment. Couples experiencing this type of love could spend years on end together but still lack intimacy and passion. They may truly enjoy each other's company and care deeply about one another but still be missing that special spark that makes everything come together.

Over time the relationship becomes comfortable but boring. It's not necessarily that anyone is doing anything wrong, but there is no denying that the relationship is just missing something to make it feel passionate and exciting.

Fatuous Love

This is the most common type of love as it includes two of the three foundations: commitment and passion. Couples often find that enough to pursue their relationship and exchange their vows. Yet, this kind of relationship despite having attraction lacks true intimacy.

These kinds of relationships go through many ups ad downs, they have their good days but they also have the days where they feel like they're not truly happy or like their needs aren't being fully met. This could be due to differing love languages or because the couple isn't able to reach a high enough level of vulnerability to fully give themselves to someone else.

Romantic Love

This kind of love has another combination of the three pillars of love: passion and intimacy. The feelings are there and so is the attraction. Couples in this kind of relationship feel really close to one another and it's easy for them to open up. They fall deeply in love, rather quickly and naturally. The only problem is they can't necessarily agree on where the relationship is headed so they just brush it off.

They put off serious commitments hoping to just go with the flow and figure the rest out in time. Unfortunately in many instances, the relationship reaches a termination point because of major commitments that can't be agreed on.

Companionate Love

Companionate love consists of commitment and intimacy, another combination that is still lacking. This type of love is somewhere between the line of friendship and love. There is somewhat of an attraction that makes the friendship feel stronger but it's mostly due to the strong bond that's shared. This kind of couple is each other's best friend, They trust each other fully, and are able to be completely themselves.

The attraction is there and the love is genuine but it's missing that head over heels super-in-love kind of feeling. Many relationships develop into this kind of love after many years of marriage.

Consummate Love

This is the ideal kind of love and yet it is the rarest of all. It is made of all the pillars of the perfect relationship: love passion, emotional and physical intimacy, and commitment. The levels of each vary throughout time but there is enough of each to keep the relationship young even after years of commitment. Arguments are resolved peacefully, affection is given freely and plans of the future are carried out.

These couples are just as in love as the day they met during their final days. They find ways to keep their relationships exciting and keep on surprising one another. They never allow themselves to truly get comfortable and stop appreciating what they have. They trust each other fully while still pursuing their own independence.

Healthy Love

All that matters in love is that you are happy and the love is healthy. The rest can be developed and worked on with the right person. In any relationship, always look at how you feel and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?

Love is more than just kisses and butterflies, it's much more than that. If you want to know more on what your birth chart reveals about how you love and what you need out of a partner, check out this personalized report based on date of birth.
