Find yourself and be yourself: Remember, there is no one else like you on Earth like you (Dale Carnegie).
Comment: But we spend our whole life fulfilling desires imposed on us from the outside. For the most part, we are not ourselves.
My Response: We, like little children, are constantly learning from others. Look at a little child. He constantly learns from adults and imitates them. You can call, let’s say, a cup by some other word, and he will repeat it after you and get used to this name.
If you teach him an action, he will try to repeat it. Then this habit will enter into his nature. He will instinctively prefer this action to others, even ones that are more reasonable and useful, because habit becomes second nature and by fulfilling its desires, he will enjoy it.
Therefore, we are all an imprint of the surrounding society and none of us is ourselves
Question: Isn’t it time for us to be ourselves? When can this happen?
Answer: Today there is already such a desire, but still in a small number of people who are beginning to ask themselves about the purpose of existence, about the seeming purposelessness of this world. Millions of people in the world are asking this question, but millions are not billions.
