Changes happen gradually and in a mode that we can't even imagine. Don't forget who you are and who you were before. Don't replace something fake with your original personality. You look great when you are yourself. This doesn't mean to repeat previous mistakes and continue our bad behaviors, but also it means we enhance our current character and be better each day. Behaving as if you are yourself are easily seen among people. People who behave as they are originated from, are more alive and a lot happier than others and even more successful. They live the exact version of what they love and expect the life should be. Remember, life won't get better or easier for anyone unless they try to make it be the version they love.
