I don’t want to admit that outside forces have changed me

Instead, I want to own the change. I want to believe that the changes are internally consistent. That who I am is who I am. That this path I’ve been on is the path I always would have taken. I want to believe that I am my own person, and that outside influences have little to do with how my views have changed over time. I want to b live that the way my views have changed has all to do with maturing, and nothing to do with my environment.
Even though I know that can’t really be the case.
