Is that our last name? So when someone asks us who we are, we are a member of some family. Does our religion defines our identity? Or ethnicity? Or our profession? Or our moral values? Maybe our goals, what we are aiming to determine our identity.
There are many things that define us as a person, as an individual. When someone ask me who I am, do I have to tell all about myself, all personal data, all I love, all I strive for and what I want?
Maybe our identity depends on the moment or stage in life. But then that would mean that identity is constantly changing, and it is something that should be formed and that does not change, right?
And maybe it does not change the identity, but changes the importance of all the above enumerated. I will always be a Christian, and that is how I will introduce myself when someone asks me who I am. Then a few years later, I will say “I’m a psychologist”, because at that moment it’s something that’s important to me. But I am still a Christian, right?
What do you say when someone asks you who you are?
