There is no shortage of opinions on any given topic, and the world has become a place where it’s hard to decipher what is real or fake. We are bombarded with sensationalized headlines that polarize us into one “click” or another. It can feel like there’s no middle ground at all — no authenticity in this era of social media activism, political polarization, and ideological warfare. But I think we’re starting to see a shift happening — and it starts with each individual person finding their authentic voice again.
