Question #26

Answer: As I said with the previous question, sort of. I believe we are born with a certain “essence” inside of us. But our surroundings, our family, our upbringing, our “nature”, continues to develop and shape us. Without my childhood and the way it happened, I wouldn’t have developed certain traits I have today. I don’t know if I would have had PTSD or not, for example. Maybe I wouldn’t have, or maybe something else would have caused it. Who knows. But like I said, I think our surroundings to make a large impact.
