It’s difficult to make an accurate description of me. I keep changing. I can say I’m a different person every month. When I read the things I wrote last year, I can see how much I have changed. When I was younger I was identifying myself with labels. I was an „artist”, a „rocker”, a „nonconformist”. Because of this narrow view, I used to judge people easily, label them, put them into categories I’ve created. 
In time I began to understand how little I know about people. I’ve learnt that nobody can’t really understand anybody (because we see everything through our personal filter of perception). People appeared more and more mysterious to me. 
I know they react to „who they are -that has an opinion about me-”, they can’t react to ME, they can’t really understand me. So I don’t take things personally anymore, and I can’t be hurt so easily. I see THEM in what they say, and not The Truth. 
I still avoid some aggressive people, but the „ME and THEM” conflict is less powerful. It’s them reacting to what they have in their heads, not having a real issue with me. 
So I don’t give advice as in „DO IT LIKE THIS!!!”, but I like to talk about life experience. I don’t take that kind of advice either, but I like to hear about others' experiences. 

I look at myself mostly, not at others. I compare myself with me, not with others. 
If at first I had the need to rely on people, to have their support or acceptance, at present this doesn’t matter anymore. It’s difficult to accept that we are alone. Friendship is a concept, it doesn’t exist. The concept of Family is so distorted sometimes. Reality is so simple... we don’t have to be somebody’s „Friend” or „Relative” for helping him or respecting his choices. I think we are ALL PEOPLE; we should respect each other equally, not because of some distorted concept of duty (for the country, family or friends), but because we ARE the sum of our actions, thoughts, and conscience. 
When people do some horrible things to other people, they think they DID IT to the other. But, in reality, they DID IT to themselves. If I choose to cheat on my partner to hurt him (or some other reason), I will feel I DID IT to him. But, in reality, I DID IT to me. I would have been the one transforming into a cheater. So when any situation arises, I put some distance (if I can) and I try to look at me to see how I react. We can easily transform ourselves into our own enemies.
I’ve been told it’s not good to be this different. Yes, because people judge. They have to label me and put me into their categories because they have to feel secure. They have to solve THEIR problems while interacting with me. Many use attack as a defensive strategy. I felt aggressed many times. People have to prove themselves they are smart, or nice, or beautiful... so they... find a way to do it eventually, by having a „fight” with someone they feel threatened by. There are some (a few) people that don’t use a discussion (or anything else) for reinforcing their image.
It’s nice to understand people react one way or another because of themselves, when they arrive in front of a person that reminds them of a problem they have.
„Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.” Carl Jung 
So... I can’t really create an image of me here. The things I wrote will pass through everyone’s personal filter of interpretation, and will summon different feelings and reactions. But it’s nice to hope someone will perceive something that is similar to me.
