Why do I have to become someone? Why can’t I have my own identity? To be successful in life why do we have to aspire to be like someone else?
Why can’t we have life on our individuality? Who had everything figured in the mother’s womb?
Our identity should not be defined or built on imitating others, psychology talks about the individual difference for the same reason. I am not saying to be inspired by others, all I am saying is not to imitate or try to become others. Mentors have a place in our life, their virtues should be learned but they should not be embedded in us.
None of us are perfect. Accept it and make peace with it.
