Who Am I? Understanding Self-Identity

“Who am I”, this question leads to the word ‘self-identity’ which each of us may ask ourselves on an everyday basis.
Since we all live in a world with many other people, the external world of our society plays a huge role in defining our self identity. As humans, we all have a need to develop a personal identity that distinguishes us from others.
Each human being is an individual with his or her own set of ideals and beliefs which they develop with regard to the surroundings they are exposed to. While establishing one’s own self-identity, there definitely will be instances where the values may be conflicting. The key to maintaining peace in this regard is having respect for each other’s beliefs, understanding the area of clashing ideals and in turn coming up with an amicable solution that suits best for both parties.
Take a moment to think about what you would say to someone when asked the question “Who are You?”
