To live inauthentically—to live someone else’s life—is to suffer.
There is no rule that states that the beautiful life you once envisioned for yourself and have created will fit you forever. As you grow, your vision grows. What was once a perfect fit may no longer be comfortable or healthy. Your once-perfect life becomes a dream that belongs to someone else, to the person you once were, not to the person you are now. When you are living someone else’s life, your suffering and discomfort are the Universe inviting you to step into yourself.
