Authentic people are not as common as we would like for them to be, and to be completely honest they are pretty hard to find.
Being authentic is important but it also is not easy. Being authentic means being who you are without apology all the time. It means standing up for what you believe in no matter what and going above and beyond to speak your mind. Authentic people are just somehow cut from a different material than the rest of us.
Below I am going to go over some of the more common signs that someone might be truly authentic. These signs are going to be things that might seem a bit odd, but they all add up to make the perfect mixture. Authenticity is made up of a lot more than you might think.
9 Traits Only Truly Authentic People Have:
