    Re: Being me.

    Everyday should be every day. I have to confess that it strikes me as pretty meaningless, though I have read worse.

    Re: Being me.

    Every and day merge into everyday only when the word is an adjective. An everyday dress, for example.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Being me.

    It's grammatically correct albeit meaningless.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is there any other way to make it meaningful? I mean the correct way to write it.

    Re: Being me.

    What is your intended meaning of 'being me'?
    I am not a teacher.

    I guess he means this:
    You have helped me to improve and be a better person than what I was.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Being me.

    And what reason were you referring to with "because"?
