What is your identity? Are you a parent? A teacher? A student? An accountant? A runner? A dog lover?

Although these examples don’t really say who we “are” as an individual, they do provide some definition that describes what we do on a regular basis. What visual image do you get in your head when I say that I am a parent? Now what visual image do you get in your head when I say that I am a runner? How about a dog lover?

These terms are ways for us to better understand ourselves and share some of our basic values and ideas with others. These terms help us to form our identity.
