... to pretend to be someone or something else
...a way of appearing or behaving that is not true or real
Living a counterfeit life is a dangerous way of punishing yourself. And the
likelihood of resuscitating that punishment becomes habitual --
until you acknowledge the importance of knowing who you really are.
If you continue to conform to what's acceptable by the world's standards
- the results are illusory. Additionally, what you really think of yourself
will change constantly...for a double-minded person is unstable in all their ways.
Transformational Change begins in the heart...
Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.
Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth; avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip.
Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions. Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you. Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust.

... turn so as to face the opposite direction
You are the master of your own decision(s). While you may have sought counsel, been influenced or stood your ground - the personhood of you, yourself --had the final say.
So it's time to turn your life in the right direction. Stop comparing yourself to another.
"Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image.
Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind.
As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and
whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete. "
Romans c 12 v 2
Eradicating IDentity CrIsIs
Paul said it best: "I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well
on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.
Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this,
but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus.
I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back."
Philippians c 3 v 13-14
Be satisfied with Being Uniquely You.
It's the Genesis of who you are!
