Personality constitutes your characteristics, which dictates your behavior. The factors that push you to follow a certain direction are instigated by your personality and, ultimately your character. It influences your reactions, too — what makes you laugh, what makes you cry, what makes you angry.
But your personality doesn’t only influence actions and decisions. Sometimes it’s the other way around. It’s a part of you that’s also constantly evolving. It is shaped as you go through life seeing and feeling things. That’s why as much as your personality largely defines who you are, it can also be the sum of your choices and experiences.
In the end, the richness of your life lies in the freedom to be who you are, while also having the liberty to experience, discover, and change if need be.
