How to be yourself

Where you were born, when you were born, and to whom you were born all have a particular influence or impact on how you become who you are. 

Figure out what you expect from life and what life expects from you. A good starting point where you were fantastic at being yourself is when you were a kid under five.

  • As you grow older, society's archetype emerges, and you become more self-conscious and less good at being yourself.
  • When you're wrinkly, you are also good at being yourself. You become less compromising and more honest.
