My brother and I have talked before about our ability to adapt to certain situations. He commented on how easily he picks up on how to talk to his bosses or coworkers, being very much aware of what topics or language is appropriate. I could very much relate to this, and it is a great example of not necessarily being untrue or dishonest about who you are, but instead being able to assess a situation and understand how the things you are going to say will be received, and then evaluate if it is worth the possible consequences.
Adapting is not conforming. Whereas conformity leaves your own ideas and thoughts behind, adapting is gifting your mind the opportunity to grow and change, enabling you to better handle a moment. Adaptation is the universe guiding you through its lesson, steadily molding you into a being that can beautifully handle any situation.
