At some point in life, you will face the philosophical question, “who am I?”
This isn’t always an easy question to answer. Most of the time, we default to the specifics: a parent, a spouse, a colleague, or a student. We tend to skip details on our personal values, interest, and beliefs. How well do you know yourself?
Sometimes it can be confusing to distinguish your beliefs and values from someone else’s. We can all be influenced by others or feel pressure from society to conform. But everyone has a different personality type, and everyone is unique. Through reflection, exploring ourselves, and looking ahead, we can determine our personal values and begin to implement them in our lives.
