What is it?
What is the self?
Is it my thoughts? Emotions?
Is it what decisions I make or the things I do?
We have to be clear:
Who we are isn’t what we do.
But what we do can change who we are.
We make mistakes that doesn’t make us a mistake.
And sometimes, we do something great and daring and it changes the very person we are to become.
We treat our identity and ideology as fixed. Something that rarely changes. But our identity is much more plastic than we give it credit for.
