@emloiyli they aren't related. "being" describes behavior or actions or something that was/is happening. the most common use is describing someone's actions, how someone was. otherwise you can say "as". you can say "he is being rude" "being the generous person I am, I helped her make dinner" "it feels like I'm being tricked" "I love being at home" "being your father has been the greatest joy of my life" "I have had a cold for so long, I miss being able to breathe"
