- I am… What you put after these two words defines you. You'd better choose carefully, but are we really the ones who choose. Are we fooling ourselves if we believe we're in charge of who we are. Yes and no. While denying the influence of the world around us is senseless, it is our unique perception that controls the way our surroundings affect us.
