The experiences we have today were likely shaped by the past events you have been through. Events in your childhood may have shaped the way you think, act, and interact with people close to you. Our memories are influenced and based on feelings we had surrounding the experience. A seemingly unimportant experience may change how you feel one day, which can cause a chain of reactions to how you act a certain day, and how you act that day could affect your life as a whole. Our identity is simply a collection of experiences.
hope this helped. have a great day!! :)
