I used to read all the time, I was a book-a-holic. My husband at the time would lecture me about reading certain classics that he read and how I should read them and be a big smartypants like him. I didn't want to read them and I didn't have to read them and finally I told him to 'shut up' because I had only observed him to have read a single book in 20 years. All his 'big reading' had been done in college. He never brought that topic up again.
That was off topic, sorry..As for differences in self since beginning to practice, they are extreme. I couldn't even answer that question.
