I often make this comment about myself, and often for similar reasons. I think David explains his version pretty well.
I’m not, and I don’t think I’ve ever been, a person who believes that our actions and reactions are set in stone. I choose to do wrong or right, be happy or sad, etc. It’s also work. It requires self-awareness and brutal honesty and there are plenty of times the person I’m least nice to, is myself, because that is what it takes to make sure I’m feeding the good dog.
