How much of who we are is nature and how much is nurtured? Were we born some way that makes us who we are? Yes. Our genetics, family dynamic, and social status all have an impact on who we are but…they don’t decide it. Each of us wakes up everyday with the ability to change. Our past and circumstances are not fatalistic. I may have learned some bad habits, but I chose whether or not to keep them regardless of who I chose to learn from.
