Embracing Authenticity Without Fear - Tetzaveh

I often wonder what stops me from wholeheartedly embracing my true self without fearing criticism. As I look back on the times when I was true to myself, I realize that those were the moments when I acted without caring about society's perceptions. For example, there was a period when I chose to wear costumes and dance at weddings, ignoring any judgment. Although those moments made me happy, they were also difficult to overcome.

While studying this week's parsha, I came across a Maamar where the Rebbe talked about the word Tzavsa, which is similar to the word Tetzaveh. Tzavsa translates to connection, which binds us to our friends, loved ones, and G-D. However, the actual value of these connections lies in their authenticity. To be genuinely meaningful, they must be sincere.

Fear of criticism can prevent us from pursuing our passions or expressing our true selves. Overcoming this fear can lead to genuine connections. It's important to acknowledge that societal pressures often contribute to this fear, making it challenging to break free and be authentic. However, embracing our uniqueness and disregarding external judgment can pave the way for more meaningful relationships and a more profound sense of self-fulfillment. Please join me this week in taking one step towards being more authentic without any fears!

Good Shabbos

All the best!
