What's the meaning of the following sentence?

I was reading a book and I found the following sentence:

"Und dann schlafe ich mit dem verrückten Gefühl ein, anders sein zu wollen als zu sein oder anders zu sein als zu wollen oder vielleicht auch anders zu tun als zu wollen oder zu sein.

The vocabulary is simple, but the phrase itself is very confusing. I ask an explanation. Danke in voraus.

For learning: German
Base language: English

    And then I fall asleep with the crazy feeling, to want to be different than you are or to be different than you want or maybe to do different than you are as well.

    Haha maybe in context it makes more sense? Have fun reading that book :)
