I have always been a firm believer that you can be whoever you want to be.
However there's always the question how? Is it just not in you?
Let's say you¡ve always wanted to be an athletic wake-up-at-6-to-go-running person, but you¡ve never really been an exercise person and let's face it: you don't really enjoy running. I bet if you really want it then you will be able to achieve it.
Is it brain-washing yourself into liking something you didn't use to?
Do we just like the image of being like "that"?
Are we fated to be the way we were born, or can we transform ourselves into someone else? And until what point do we become poseurs?
I am certain that during our lives we grow, we make mistakes, we adapt, so therefor we change, we do change, but how much does our "inner essence" change?
This should really be the preamble for a long article called "How to become who you want to be". But I'm not there yet.
I can't help but keep wondering if "getting there", being who you want to be, implies that much change.
I can't write that guide, and I think that it'd be rather hard for anybody to do so.
But hey, I'm just 18, there's a lot of road to be paved ahead, so we will write it, we will write that guide as we go. Each one of us will.
Infinite x's & o's...
