    simple question:

    if i use 2 different anchor texts pointing to the same domain(same domain and same page) :will google penalize the value of my links for this?

    should i change it and point the anchor texts to different pages of my main domain?

    It's better to point one of your anchor links to an inner page of your site (deep linking).

    I don't think so. Actually if you use just one anchor text pointing to the same page every time, it screams SPAM!. So, you better vary your keywords and keep it natural.

    Plus, backlinking massively to a single page of a site, whether it's internal or the homepage and not distribuite your backlinks over all your pages, looks innatural and may be a reason for penalizations.

    Deep linking is a good advice. Keep it natural.

    Definitely vary anchor texts and link locations.

    Doing so will help you, not penalize you.

    You should vary the anchor text .. Here is an excerpt from the Link Pyramid WSO that was shared here few days back

    Code:
    [B]Anchor Text[/B]
    
    As long as we are discussing linking and link building, It's important that you
    NEVER use the exact same anchor text (the visible, clickable text in a hyperlink) for every single contextual link to a webpage of yours.
    
    For example, if we're linking to our acne webpage, we won't use acne as our
    anchor text for every single link to our acne webpage. The search engines DON'T like
    this.
    
    Since we're in the business of doing what the search engines reward, use the
    following guide for the anchor text you use when creating links:
    
    60% primary target keyword/keyword phrase e.g. acne
    20% alternative keyword phrase e.g. acne skin
    10% alternative keyword phrase
    10% alternative keyword phrase
    5% alternative keyword phrase
    5% alternative keyword phrase
