Melissa Camara Wilkins is an award-winning blogger and host of an online community focused on exploring what it means to live true: more truly yourself, more truly awake, and more truly alive.
Melissa thinks that good things happen when you show up in the world as yourself, and she comes most alive when helping others see that they are enough, exactly as they are.
She believes that trying to become better is exhausting, but living out a truer story is simpler. It’s a relief, because it means you don’t have to distract yourself anymore from who you are and what you need.
About Living True
Living true is about rewriting negative self-talk. It’s about setting down the mask that you’ve mistaken for your true self. It’s about giving up on people-pleasing, so you don’t have to endlessly figure out—and remember!—who wants what.
It’s about letting go of complicated, high-pressure ways of being in the world, and finding something simpler underneath.
And when you become more of who you really are—imperfect, but whole and free—you start to understand that everyone else is just as nuanced and layered and real as you are. This is how we find common ground: by first resting in our common humanity.
Melissa explores these ideas each week through story and connection, with a fresh perspective.
