Struggling with identity
At the centre of and throughout our being, is our sense of identity.
Some aspects of our identity are given to us while others are created through our actions and experiences as we go through life.
Identity has many layers starting with how we see ourselves as an individual and continuing through to the sense of being connected to others by shared history, beliefs, values and goals.
Identity can be a source of comfort, strength and confidence but can also leave us with a sense of shame, isolation or confusion.
