What is this – character? A set of qualities and characteristics of each person, which is given to us from birth or it gradually develops, grows and changes with us?
My character – these are the features that distinguish me from other people, it affects my behavior and way of life. It’s hard to say exactly what your character is. The way you see yourself can be very different from the point of view of others. I consider myself shy, and someone may seem shy or unsociable, dreaminess is mistaken for absent-mindedness, honesty for stupidity. Probably, each person is very different from what he seems to others.
Character – it’s our habits and behavior, changing them, you can change yourself. There are two points of view on this issue: some believe that you need to be yourself, do not change and do not adjust to circumstances, others see the goal of life in constant self-improvement and try to get rid of those character traits that... they do not like.
I think that this is all right. If you try to change your essence, force yourself to do things that you do not like, constantly live by other people’s rules, you can never be happy, and you will only torment yourself and your relatives for nothing. After all, only a truly happy person can make others happy. But, at the same time, one can not justify his bad qualities by character and not try to change something. Everyone can and should strive to become better and get rid of all bad.
I do not know exactly what my character is, but I’ll try to change it for the better. I have many shortcomings, getting rid of which I will become better, stronger and happier. While I have time to work on myself, I try to understand what I want to be and what I need to do for it. Everyone needs to work on themselves, no matter how hard it is.
