Most of us spend our whole lives trying to find out who we really are. Try this, try that, stay here, go there. Our identities evolve. Who we are now will be different from who we were yesterday and who we will be tomorrow. Although I must admit that our identities only change to a certain extent. There are some things that we cannot control however hard we try. But isn’t it a beautiful and freeing idea to be in control of (almost) all of your life? Isn’t it a wonderful realisation that it is never too late to be who we want to be?
On the other hand, we must also accept that others change too. The people around us will change – hopefully for the better. But the best thing is that we can change (or reinforce who we already are) together.
