And if you have ever thought about what it means to “be your own person,” you know that it’s not just about being an individual – your identity is formed around who you are with and what you love. I love my mom and her strong-willed personality. She makes me a better person, but her personality is not me.
In fact, her personality is your personality. You don’t need to fit into a mold. As an individual, your personality is entirely your own, and it’s not based on what someone else wants you to be.
So if you’re feeling lonely lately, it may be that your personality is being molded by the people you’ve grown up around or even by those who would like to change your personality, but never have the chance to. As your personality is not tied to what a person wants you to be, how you act, or what they want you to be, it’s much easier to just choose to be yourself.
If your personality is not based on what someone wants you to be, then what is? But then again, people often find themselves in situations where they have to act differently than they would like.
If you have to do something differently than how you would like to do it, there is a part of you that is going to find itself in a situation where you cannot act as you would like. You may be thinking “But why would I want to do that?”, but it is because you don’t want to be the person that the other person wants you to be. And in that case, you do have the option of deciding to act differently.
And this is where the power of choosing to act differently in certain circumstances really comes to the fore. So long as you are not acting differently than you would like to be acting, you can still act how you would like to act. So if you were to decide that you don’t want to be the person you would be if you acted differently than you would like to act, you are still able to act how you would like to act.
In the case of pete, she has decided that she wouldn’t want to be the person she would be if she acted differently than she would like to act. She wants to be herself, she wants to do what she has to do, but she doesn’t want to be the person she would be if she acted differently than she would like to act.
So like, if you were to act like you dont want to be the person you would be if you acted differently than you would like to act, you still would be able to act.
That is a great line. If you want to act more like yourself, act more like you would like to act. But unlike you, pete would never like to act like she didnt want to be the person she was.
And that is exactly what pete wants to do. She knows that if she acts more like herself, she will act more like herself, but she also knows that that is not the kind of person she would be if she acted more like herself. So even if she knows that she would be a better person if she acted more like herself, she still wants to act more like herself because she knows that her true self is better than she would like to be.
