We have many different sides within our personalities. Think about it; no one is like a movie/soap opera/cartoon character that always dresses the same, that has super specific skills and traits that no one else has, no, that's not who we are. I believe this was a line from Shrek (haha): we're like onions, we have layers and layers... And it's okay to be like that, it's okay to not be unidimensional individuals.

Back when I was in middle and my early years of high school I got a bit confused and was kind of a mean kid. After you've been bullied for a long time (like I was), sometimes the only answer that comes to mind is to get tough and be mean to others so they fear and respect you. I was like that for a while and, thank the gods, I had a change of heart and decided that being mean was too much of a hassle, that it wasn't really who I was or the kind of person that I wanted to become. 

After that, I toned down that side of my personality and decided to bring others to light: I chose to be nice. And, let me tell you, it was one of the smartest decisions I've made. Of course, I had to work hard at it but, eventually, it became natural to me. I'm a nice guy now and, sure, from time to time my dark side comes out and I get mean but I go back to being nice real soon because it's easier to be nice, to be kind. I don't know if that is ever going to make me a winner at life but it sure does allow me to sleep peacefully at night.

// Tenemos muchos lados distintos dentro de nuestras personalidades. Piénsenlo; nadie es como personaje de caricatura/telenovela/película que siempre se viste igual, que tiene habilidades y características súper específicas que nadie más comparte, no, no somos así. Creo que esto lo saqué de Shrek (jaja): somos como cebollas, tenemos muchas capas... Y está bien ser así, está bien no ser personas unidimensionales. 

Hace tiempo cuando estaba en secundaria y prepa, me confundí un poco y me volví un chavito malo. Después de que has sido bulleado tanto (como yo), a veces la única respuesta que viene a ti es volverte rudo y ser malo con los demás para que te teman y respeten. Yo fui así por un tiempo y, gracias a los dioses, tuve un cambio de corazón y decidí que ser malvado era mucho trabajo, que no era realmente el tipo de persona que era o en quién me quería convertir.

Tras eso, atenúe mucho ese lado de mi personalidad y elegí traer otros a la luz: escogí ser amable. Y, déjenme decirles, fue una de las mejores decisiones que pude tomar. Por supuesto, tuve que trabajar mucho pero, eventualmente, se volvió natural para mí. Soy una persona amable ahora y, sí, de vez en cuando mi lado obscuro sale a la luz y me pongo malo pero vuelvo a mi naturaleza amable muy pronto porque es más fácil ser amable, ser bueno. No sé si eso me volverá un campeón en la vida pero lo que sí es que me permite dormir tranquilo todas las noches.
