Who Am I?

Most people ask themselves this question at least once in their lifetime. It is one that is often answered differently depending on the phase of life we are in. One thing that is not often considered is that who we are is often defined by the relationships we are in, such as, mother, sister, friend, wife, teacher, neighbor, etc. There are descriptors such as beautiful, kind, funny, etc but those are only one dimensional. The relational descriptors provide a two dimensional description of who we are by describing both our inner and outer influence and experience.

Along with these relational descriptors is the relationship we have with ourselves. Is it a loving relationship or an abusive relationship? Can we honestly say that we like who we are? If not, what needs to happen in order to bring about that change?
