Differing aspects of us

multiple peopleA friend of ours has recently acquired a lovely new partner. He was always very sound and good hearted, but as it has been remarked upon in the wider friendship circle, he seems to have become much nicer open and generally more friendly. Almost a new man. His late wife was a wonderful woman, but X has brought out a softer, nicer side to his personality.

This made me think how many differing aspects that we all have to our personalities. Several different people are probably inside us. The personalities that we develop, in our interactive reality, depend more than we think on who we interact with and our circumstance in life.On which aspects are brought out. Not only that but friends at the opposite end of the spectrum may see almost completely different people.

Anyway, just another example of the absolute fluidity of our reality in practice. We cannot even really be sure of who, as people, we or our friends really are.

What do you think?
