    As a product of the ideal that was perfection.

    Since I was a child (approx. 7/8yo) I would notice everyone's flaws (subjective opinion, I know) and adapt my personality so that I don't conform to those flaws. I would also take into account the disliked characteristics of human behaviour and ensure that my personality lacked those. It's funny how after years of conditioning/brainwashing myself I genuinely don't care what others think about me anymore. I'm glad I went through that process, though.

    Interesting. I was quite the opposite. Since I was I child, I've always noticed everyone's qualities, and so I felt bad about myself because I didn't have those qualities and didn't know how to have them, or thinking that if I had them, it wouldn't be myself. Yeah, confusing. Type 4?

    I'm starting not to care about those things or starting to change some of my behaviors. I'll be myself anyways.

    I'm a who, without doubt.
    What I do is determined by who I am. In some ways it feels like there is this me that is striving, like a flower grows and reaches, always striving toward a pinnacle of unfurling its petals in full bloom. Purity of purpose. There are a thousand, a million, things I choose to do, from the smallest to the largest decisions, but only some of them will go toward furthering this growth and unveiling of who I am. This reality of myself is a constant changing source of discovery. To fully achieve understanding would seem to reach some sort of transcendence.

    It has nothing to do with anyone else. And in a lot of ways, is unrelated to what I do as well. A lily is still a lily even if it is stunted and chopped off before it flowers. Not that doing is unimportant, my happiness and satisfaction with life is dependent on continued growth.
