Rather than trying to flee what you don’t want to be, make a beeline for what you do want to be in your life (I’m talking about personal qualities here, not status).

You can put a lot of (fruitless) effort and energy into trying to avoid things you don’t like about yourself.

As a general rule, it is easier and more enjoyable to decide how you’d like to be in your life, and plan the steps that’ll take you towards it.
