Abigail Spenser Hu Talks About Authenticity In Her Upcoming Book “The Millennial Handbook A to Z”

Abigail Spenser Hu talk about her dubut single “Inward” was inspired by the first chapter of her book authenticity. And she says she will continue make new songs base on a chapter of her book that was based on her life stories.

Physical Healing

After building a successful series of businesses she took two years “off” to focus on herself and her healing, and her spiritual growth back in 2017. She revisited and rewrote part of the book during Covid as she got better understanding of life through the pandemic right after she finished the third draft of the book. Through physical healing sessions and psychological and emotional therapy twice a week, she encountered many ideas. The first she want to talk about is authenticity. Therefore first chapter in the book under letter A.

Authenticity refers to being genuine, true to oneself, and real. It involves being honest with oneself and others about one’s thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and values, and acting in a way that aligns with those internal qualities.

Fulfillment In Life

Being authentic can be challenging in a world that often rewards conformity and encourages people to present a certain image to others. However, authenticity is an important aspect of personal growth and well-being. It can help you to form deeper and more meaningful relationships, and can also lead to a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment in life.

There are many ways to cultivate authenticity. Some people find it helpful to set aside time for self-reflection, to get to know themselves better and to understand their own values and beliefs. Others find it helpful to engage in activities that align with their passions and interests, or to seek out supportive and accepting communities where they can be themselves. Ultimately, the path to authenticity is a personal one, and what works for one person may not work for another.

In her book she asked ? “How do we know what is real? And how do we know what really works for each of us?”

She opened up about her self in the book mentioning “I remember when I was a little kid, I was always shy and afraid to speak up. If I were aware of something I knew, or something good I had done, there was fear that others would be jealous. If I wanted to know something or was confused, I was afraid others would look down on me. Rather than draw either favorable or negative attention to myself, I focused on fitting in, staying quiet and trying to disappear. I thought this might ease my internal anxiety, but in truth all it did was cause a buildup of energy within me. I still encountered gossip in school, jealousy, rumors and the recognition that no matter what you do, some people will like it and some will not. There’s no winning when you seek the approval of others.”



Abigail talked about she used to prioritize other people’s expectations above her own needs and desires, which was a major shift for her. This tendency towards people-pleasing needed to be addressed. As she began to focus on her own needs and desires, she noticed a change in her relationships. It was easier to be confident and independent in her relationships with friends and in public, but in romantic relationships with men, she found that old insecurities and patterns kept coming up. While she understand the importance of authenticity and am committed to building it within herself, she still find it difficult and scary at times. In later chapters, she will delve more into these patterns and the challenges of cultivating authenticity, particularly in romantic relationships.

We are very excited about the release of this book. Can’t wait to read what else she has to say to her peer millennials.
