Identity crisis simply means, the inability to rightly define you. You are whom you call yourself; ignorance of this reality, makes you live below your potential. You find yourself a slave to identity crisis when you fail to realise that some destinies cannot be fulfilled when your destiny, has not reached its full potential.
“When you don’t know who you are, misconception of purpose is inevitable.”
Three things are bound to happen when you are a victim of identity crisis:
1. Inferiority complex:
This is the lack of self-esteem, a doubt and uncertainty about oneself, and feelings of naught measuring up to standard. The moment you don’t know your worth, you domesticate and hospitalize mediocrity. You allow unnecessary things hamper you. You disappoint your generation, by not delivering to them.
Inferiority complex makes you see whats not there. Identity crisis makes you settle for less than you deserve as an individual, irrespective of whether you are up to the task of taking up the responsibility or not.
Compromise is when you accept, reduce your demand or change your opinion in order to reach an agreement with someone. Many compromise because they don’t know their worth; they will surely bend to anything. People step on you, steal your ideas and make you feel worthless yet you take it with all with humility because you are still in a state of crisis with your identity.
If you lose everything, don’t lose your identity. Guard your identity with all you have got.
Frustration is a deep chronic sense or state of insecurity and dissatisfaction arising from unresolved problems or unfulfilled needs. When inferiority complex has successfully found its expression in a man or woman of purpose, frustration becomes a permanent feature of your life. Just imagine you not knowing your worth, everybody will take you for granted and award you lower than your standard, definitely you already opened the door and window for frustration to set in.
Knowing your identity is the first step towards achieving your dreams, plans and purpose. When you have successfully found the expression of your identity, every other thing falls in place.
Understanding your identity moves you in the right direction in the achievement of your lifelong dream.
