You can't change who you are unless you want to, but whether you want to is part of who you are. Some paradox.

If Pinocchio said, "My nose will grow now!" and his nose didn't grow, then he would have told a lie... But his nose grows when he lies. Since his nose would have grown, it would be a paradox because his nose grew even though he told the truth.

See: Paradox
I went back in time and accidentally killed myself, but I'm not gone because since I was never born. I never came back and killed myself, so that means I'm still alive in the future to come back in time and kill myself, which is why I'm here, having just killed myself and restarted the vicious cycle. I'm stuck in a Paradox.

a phrase or sentence contradicting itself. Odd Future Rapper Tyler, The Creator has a whole song "Yonkers" that contradicts itself.....Tyler is a Fuckin G
" I'm a fucking walking paradox, no I'm not
Threesomes with a fucking triceratops, Reptar."

Reptar is actually a Velociraptor or a Tyrannosaurus-rex..its debateble.. but not a triceratops. but Tyler's paradoxing “triceratops” since the “tri” represents it’s three horns, which connects to “threesomes” (sex acts involving three people (or dinosaur/people combo — for instance Tyler, Reptar, and a triceratops)

paradox is a true statement or group of statements that leads to a contradiction or a situation which defies logic or intuition. The term is also used for an apparent contradiction that actually expresses a non-dual truth such as two true sentences which put together seem incompatible as both being true. Typically however, quoted paradoxical statements do not imply a real contradiction and the puzzling results can be rectified by demonstrating that one or more of the premises themselves are not really true, a play on words, faulty and/or cannot all be true together. But many paradoxes, such as Curry's paradox, do not yet have universally accepted resolutions. The word paradox is often used interchangeably with contradiction. Literary and other artistic uses of paradoxes imply no contradiction and may be used to describe situations that are ironic. Sometimes the term paradox is used for situations that are merely surprising.

Somewhat like a Mindfuck. Paradoxes are usually used as an example for the impossible or that god exists. Such as with every negative will come a positive.
If there is Anti-Matter, how can there be matter?
The girl died of , but thanks to the research done by the scientists based on her case, they were able to save the lives of many others.

You prevent your mother from creating yourself with your dad. But as a result, you wouldn't exist, therefore you couldn't do it in the first place. It's essentially an endless cycle.
These are examples of a paradox.
