When we spend a lot of time with other people, we start to act like them. This happens for two reasons:
The first is that we want to be accepted by them. The second is that we begin to see their behavior as the correct behavior, because that’s what we’re being exposed to the most.
You have to be a deep person to overcome this. You need to listen to your deeper self. Incidentally, a person who does that is a true leader. A person who does that can awaken others.
