Thread Name: BS: Are you your own person?
Subject: RE: BS: Are you your own person?
I started to answer much as Alex did...but a more honest answer for me is "God NO! How could I possibly be?" - So much of what is me is due to those pieces of me that are "owned" by others. Or that have been given.

And while I think a tinge of self-centeredness is necessary -- I think that "being one's own person" - if somebody truly is one's own person is either very self-centered...or very, very lonely and a little sad.
