Our True Identity

What is your true identity?  And what does that statement even mean to you?  So often we confuse our true identity with the roles we play.

We’ve heard this for years.  So think about all the roles we each play.  Whether you are a woman or a man, there are numerous roles we have in our life.  Of course… As a woman, I am a: daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, business owner.  I’ve been a teacher, realtor, salesperson.  We each could go on and on when we dissect the many things we have done throughout our life that we may identify as our role at that time.

So what is our true identity?  Is it the roles we are playing?  Actually, no.  The roles we play are merely how we have chosen to express ourselves.

Our true identity is the internal person we are and the roles are the external persona.

What are your thoughts on this?  What roles do you play?
