How to be yourself
Written by Richard Docwra
Our personal identity is our sense of who we are, what matters to us and how we feel about ourselves. Our ability to build, nurture and protect it has a significant bearing on what we get from our lives and our experience of them.
It is particularly important to have this ability when we live in a complex world, full of choices and with many influences acting on us, where it can sometimes be a challenge to stay happy with who we are and maintain a clear sense of our genuine needs and wants, rather than those that other people are trying to instil in us.
This Life Squared leaflet outlines 10 steps you can take to build and protect your identity.
