The question is: how do you know you are who you want to be? How do you, amongst the tosses and tumbles of every day conflict, the frantic pace, the faces and names, impressions and indentations, know that you are a creation of your own being? an individual force unto itself in which the choices you make, the paths you follow, the wide-breasted highways and skinny avenues of your life are the ways you follow because of you—because of individual convictions and your own moral and ethical codes. Are you really a person by choice or a creature by force-a chameleon living and changing, shifting and shading off the moods and needs, wants and desires of the people around you?
