Do you recognize yourself anymore?

We as people grow and change everyday. Some of us change inside out and some of us may change only at the skin level. These past days I have been mentally revisiting my childhood.. and I hardly recognize the person I was and yet I am the same person.. To be honest, I used to be a moody person.. very easily offended and hurt. Over sensitive is what I would like to call myself.. I am still very sensitive.. But I have learned to handle those situations well and not redirect them inwardly as I used to. I laugh and smile so much that people seek my company. So much has changed over the years that I could consider myself to be the opposite of what I was in my childhood. I would even go to say I never really liked the person I was .. but I truly like who I am today. I have been working on myself for years.. yes I have. Having an understanding of who you are and being able to take control over your emotions could change the very person you are. Have you changed at all? Do you recognize your old self anymore? How have your changes affected you as a person?

@vandana7 I have both mild and dark sarcastic sense of humor, and I can find fun out of everything. I think my dark phase is passing slowly. So yeah that's why I am seeing new of myself every day. otherwise i was in such a loop.. now i feel free on many things now.

Just like you i am very sensitive when i was younger . Being the eldest , i was authoritative . But now , i mellowed . I want to do my share of caring to my sister because i am the eldest . I guess , we change for the better , because we now know what is right and what is wrong so we can be loved by other people .

@sofssu,I am now an altogether different person from what I used to be in my adolescence.As a teenager I was a timid boy who was afraid of everyone and every thing he came across,but now I am always ready to face any challenge no matter how difficult it is.

I think inwardly I'm still the same person I always was. I'm also very sensitive, and I do get hurt and offended easily, but I'm learning to deal with it better than in the past. Outwardly, I've changed a lot. I've put on a gross amount of weight which thankfully is starting to come off.

You have changed into a better person for sure. I am so happy to hear this testimony and while reading I could identify myself with you. My new self is certainly very different from the old. The changes did not come instantly, it happened little by little everyday, God keeps changing me into a person He wants me to be.
