I definitely listen as I’m a very observant person. And I also ask questions and talk a lot with my friends.
I definitely agree with you on the “However, learning about others taught me about myself.” part. I see how people are and if there is someone whom I don’t like their personalities then it teaches me about who I don’t want to be like.
And to answer your question yes I am content with what my future might look like. Although I don’t really know what you mean by that. I love who I am. I know that I can be better that is why I’m constantly growing and getting better. But ultimately I love the true me, the weird exciting one. And I love this me even more because when I am just being myself with my friends and they, out of the blue tell me “I love you” when I’m just being weird and I’m just being free as myself well at that moment I know that I’m doing the right thing by being me.
I’m not sure I agree with your last sentence though.
You need to become what you were meant to be in the first place. And I think that I am in that place right now. I’m not trying to be what I can be because this person or that person told me to be that. I am the person that I was supposed to be from day 1, without all the judgements and suggestions of others telling me who I should and should not be. Ultimately you know deep inside your heart who you really are, who you were really meant to be. And that is who you need to be. That is what you have to work toward.
