What do I do?

I've had this habit and I can't stop it I went through a lot as a kid which caused me to start masking who I was.

I'm now 20 and feeling either already lost or starting to lose touch with myself, like I can be anyone you want, I can adapt to give you whatever you want, the person you want I can almost perfectly create it in myself.

And yeah I know this sounds stupid, but its genuinely something that is ruining my life at first it was a survival technique, but now I've lost control of it and I don't know who I am anymore I just feel so lost and empty.
