truly what something is said to be; authentic:
One of the best parts of my current role in Young Life is that I get to work with folks in small towns, suburbs and urban settings. I get to work with high school students, college students, parents, administrators, CEO’s, YL staff. I get to work with wealthy, poor and everything in between. Men and women.
I am convinced that being genuine is universally appreciated.
Flashy, Sarcastic, Humorous all require require translation. Authenticity does not.
It is the opposite of contrived.
The key is not to try to communicate that you care but instead to actually care.
Genuine is not something you do it is something you are.
