  1. Hi Evan — that’s interesting, I’ve been thinking about this issue lately. I think it was an instinctive irritation I felt when I saw a quote like “what you are is nothing more than a collection of habits.” :) For me, a habit is inauthentic for me when I created it to compensate for some perceived deficiency in me — maybe being withdrawn in a certain situation because I assume “no one wants to talk to me anyway,” or being loud because I assume “no one will listen to me otherwise.” If it isn’t done to compensate, following my habit can have that refreshing feeling of being true for me.
