Why to Live Authentically?

Live-Authentically

For the existentialists the only way to deal with the absurdity of life is living authentically…

As of course from my personal point of view: Life is not absurd at all…

But for existentialists — Life is somehow absurd…

But in many ways we can agree that one should strive to live authentically in the life…

At the simplest level, existentialists think that living authentically is important…

Because it means living in accord with who you are or being true to who you are…

But it is not easy to live authentically for these two reasons:

1- Living authentically causes a lot of discomfort in your life…

Allowing the way in which you live to reflect a kind of conformity to the world…

And to live with the pre-given meanings people present to is always easy to do…

Which means conforming to the crowd is easier than being your own person…

But you need to be able to resist being absorbed…

Existentialists think that no one should hide from what he is…

2- The existentialists think that being true to yourself means living the kind of being that you are…

In other words they see the human as an absurd being with an absurd nature…

But this is not true at all because we individually hold a specific nature specific to each one of us…

Which this means for them that whatever life path a human chooses in the life…

The human will never receive any external justification for why that path was the right one to choose…

But is there an internal justification for the human to justify this path chosen for the self…

They say that authentic living means that you do will internally be sure of this path that you chooses…

This would be the challenge of living in an authentic way…

But I think this justification internally comes from the fact of believing that God has chosen for you this path…

Which makes living authentically a lot easier to live by that what the existentialists think…?
