But becoming something is easy, like playing a part on a stage. I have been many things in my life—a mother, a waitress, a videographer, a good little girl—but they were all just roles, parts that I have played. Inside, nothing changed. I am still just me, the person my genes and my environment programmed me to be. There is no escape through being something.To truly change we must change how we see ourselves, change its affect on us- after all, if an apple fell into an orange grove, it would still be an apple. No matter how much it might admire the bright, fragrant oranges, it would always be an apple. So no matter what role I play, nothing will change until I change the picture inside. Otherwise I will always be what my reflexes guide me to be, what my inner self sees and has always seen, the child of an alcoholic.
