No one ever completely becomes themselves in life, for other interactions cause alterations in the status and realization of the goal. But to become yourself to the best of one's abilities means limiting those outside interactions and not allowing anyone to get "under your skin", so to speak. Keep everyone at arms length and never let anyone take control over you in any way.
