    It would depend on what one considers "better." Some people think improving their physical fitness makes them better while others instead focus on improving their mind. Being better could mean becoming more nurturing or it could mean taking a stand against injustice. Too many people think being better relates directly to the amount of their disposable income.

    The people I most admire are those that risk their lives to expose government corruption despite all the wolves and sheeple standing in their way. I know this makes me "better" because people who blindly trust their leaders often fly into a rage complete with utter denial when I point out their leaders' dark side. People will even go to extremes trying to prevent the message from spreading. Making enemies is an unfortunate side effect of social responsibility.

    I think my sad, unhappy and abusive past that makes me wanna be the better version of myself and not to get sucked into the same hole. My aunts, my family and my own biological mother make me want to change everything's bad about me to be a better version. I always realize that I am my mother's offspring, so I might have the same exact traits like she had in herself. So I always try to look into myself and my soul for not being like them all and change it. Change is very important because it means that you grow as a human being.

    I want myself to be a better person.

    If I'm a better person, everything will be that much better.

    Is this a trick question?
