    The love I have for other people and the love they have for me, has shaped me into the person I am today. Plus the pains in my life has also helped shaped me, it made me stronger.
    Good question smile

    Well, to begin with, pretty much life itself, all the trials and tribulations of just living. I was so shy when I was young due to the environment I lived in, that I would hardly even have the courage to speak to another if I did not know them.  If I had to walk into a room full of people, and they all turned around to look at me, my knees would knock and I would be terrified that someone may even speak to me.  I've always known the Lord, but then went astray, but when I truly became a follower of Christ, the old passed away and now I am a new creature in Christ, and I have found my voice, as He revealed to me at that point, that I was not living as He had created me to live.  He desired that I have an abundant life, and His awesome loved saved me from myself, and now I am able to love myself and love others, forgive others, have compassion for others, show kindness to others, even when they may not be kind to me, as I know there is something going on with them, and I can actually ask the Lord to bless and keep my enemies, as it is He who protects me and goes ahead of me to clear the way.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    My early life was shaped by my parents choices, including several that left me ill and near death. Since I was 13, more and more, I've been learning to create my own mind, actions, habits, and destiny. And many wise people - from Zen masters to a great librarian - have given me great gifts.

    Now, my life is shaped by the endless flow of the Divine moving in me and through me for healing and creativity.

    I am shaped by exams, financial constraints, government policies, my family and many more. Each second has an impact on me. I will continue to be shaped as long as I am living.

    There were days when i used to feel timid to face problems and would give in to helpless crying. My traumatic experiences taught me a valuable lesson that the world cannot be faced by cowards. My problems became my teacher and i knew everything can be overcome by courage.

    The guidance from my parents and the teaching I received from my teachers. Along the way of growing up, I learnt from my colleagues and friends to understand the value in life.

    With love and affection from my family helps in a better way.

    The person I am  shaped by all the is abuse I had to experience as a child and as an adult. I was given up at 4 and then adopted. Things were not easy growing up.Then I had an abusive relationship.
    After years of counseling I came to terms with all if it and I know consider myself a survivor and one hell of a strong person. I can also help pass that on to other who have a background like mine.

    Good parenting, testings and trials and most of all accepting Christ as my personal Saviour.

    Two horrible parents. This led to knowing that I wanted to be the opposite of them and turned out quite well.

    Love has shaped me into the person I am today. Not so much the romantic kind but the messy, glorious, genuine love from parents and children. I am lucky to have and be loved

    Life and all your experiences will definitely keep shaping you constantly but the greatest impact on your personality is effected by your family - especially your parents. Whether directly through them or separately on your own because of them (as is my case), negative or positive etc. Even the absence of them has a great consequence.
    For me, my parents indirectly changed my entire perspective on many things and also, I think even your expectations shape you. Before anything begins to affect you, it's always your expectations and their results that make the first and most effective collision.

    Fifteen years ago I invented
    1) the formula of Earthly Paradise;
    2) double pyramid or perfect Monad;
    3) information filter;
    4) the formula of perfect organization;
    5) the formula of absolute power or universal weapon;
    6) the formula of subjective happiness;
    7) how to have a power without breaking the cosmic laws.
    I understood the main reason of the suffering for all people on Đ•arth! One person (or one organization) can not serve two gods! Sinners killed Jesus. And what now? Now no one knows all the cosmic laws. Now no one can stop AIDS. Belarusians do not need my inventions. I learned English. I hope that the Americans want to know the truth!

    I think you're born with a lot of it.
    I never really knew my father until my late 20s. My sister spent a weekend with him a few years back and said she was surprised how much we were alike. He couldn't have shaped me because he wasn't around, so I think it must be heriditary.
    On th other hand, I think a lot of it is nurture too.  We're raised to have certain values that shape us and events that happen drastically mold who we are. So i think it's a good mix between nature and nurture.
