Am I the same person I used to be? In one way, yes. Yet I have dedicated a lot of time to an effort to understand more about life - and about myself. That journey of discovery has taken me to many interesting places and my experiences have significantly shaped my personality. So, I can't really view the situation I now face through the eyes that I once looked out from. I cannot react to a problem in a way that I might have once responded. A moment of insight made me realise this.
