A while ago I have been thinking about what I have achieved in my life and what I would like to improve. And I figured out that eventually people became less flexible physically and emotionally. Society dictates us the patterns of life style. Even though you feel that you cant keep up with new innovations, you have to follow them. Because only in that way you won't look like a black sheep among people. But each of us is a personality and we should follow our needs. Here is a question: do you always count with your wishes? Perhaps, sometimes you even don't know what you really want. This is an effect of brainwash. I found myself thinking, I need to try out different roles in my life. And decide thoroughly who I actually WANT to be! So, my first role was a lady of pre-revolutionary time, graceful and noble, plentiful and intelligent. Certainly this role is not easy but quite existing.

A while ago I was thinking about what I have achieved in my life and what I would like to improve. I realised that eventually people become less flexible /adaptable /resilient both physically and emotionally. Society dictates to us the patterns of our lifestyle. Even though you feel that you can’t keep up with new innovations, you have to follow them, because only in that way will you not look like a black sheep [among people]. But each of us is a personality /an individual with a unique personality, and we should follow our needs. Here is a question: do you always count your wishes /find yourself dreaming of something better ? Perhaps sometimes you don't even know what you really want. This is an effect of [brainwashing] social conditioning. I found myself thinking that I needed to try out different roles in my life and decide who I actually WANT to be! So, my first role was that of a lady in pre-revolutionary times, graceful and noble, prosperous /wealthy /rich and intelligent. Certainly this role is not easy but it is quite [existing] exciting.
Well done ! It’s quite entertaining to speculate on how we would behave had we been born elsewhere, in a different time or place. That’s why we enjoy reading novels or watching dramas. Of course, we usually imagine ourselves in positions of privilege - it’s much more agreeable !

We wouldn't normally use black sheep in that context but dinasour can mean someone outdated. Also I thought you meant exciting at the end but wasn't sure
