I'm more than I once was but 99% of it was subconscious change. I never 'practiced it', it was a passive change. I just so happened to be in a better environment than others. I agree with what ya say, just it wasn't an active process. If I had to formulate a theory it would be how our initial personalities as essentially dictated by our infantile upbring by our parents, interpret situations. Mix in some environmental factors (friends, etc.) to account for anomalies

I understand what ya mean now. As for your general rule yes, but you don't really 'practice' being yourself (unless you act unlike yourself). Practicing being me is like practicing breathing.

But what is 'yourself' if not the traits you refine through experiences and personal values?

As a child, you probably liked eating your own boogers and the word poop, yet that was you as well. You just changed over time, adopting and adapting with traits and qualities you desired. You saw the ideal of optimism and formed it into your own person, and that's fine, people do that all the time. I'm not saying you are somehow fake, you are more you now than you were yesterday, surely; I'm just making a point on what it means to identify as the people we imagine ourselves to be and visualize in our thoughts and actions.

Unfortunately, some people do not attain the same qualities you have. Indeed, when two people face poverty, one might learn the value of a dollar and hard work while the other might just learn how to con others; such is the same with your scenario. You faced hardship and saw the sun, while others only saw gloom and defeat. Whether that is a mark against their character is only for you to decide, but BECAUSE of this refinement of yours, being the ideal of who you imagine yourself to be is indeed as easy as breathing. Dig it?
