Language and Self

Lokman: "Growing up bi-lingual myself, I experienced first hand how language can shape or limit the way you can express yourself or how intercultural communication can really f* up things because the word in one language translated into the other has such a different connotation."

Yes, "language can shape or limit the way you can express yourself". It also defines the way you think and the way you look at the world. Sometimes I am not sure myself whether what I say and what I think truely reflects my self...If, without ever knowing language X, would I still have the same thoughts?
