Hej behöver feedback på min essay, notera strukturen och ordvalet, jag tål all kritik även destruktiv. Var petiga jag känner att jag behöver det för att utvecklas.
This is me
Who are you? The surprising puzzle of identity is what makes you who you are. In this essay I will discuss different factors that can change and frame your identity, how you can find and choose your personality and finally understand your destiny.
To begin with your journey, you need to know that external factors such as social media and being exposed to fame at a young age. Is in fact incredibly crucial and plays such a major role in the development of your identity. The former Disney star, Demi Lovato, is known to have been struggling in the spotlight. Since you are expected to figure out who and what you want to be quite quickly in front of the entire world. She finds herself being under immense pressure to be the very best. She finds herself in the same way feeling pressured from the unrealistic beauty standards that are programmed through society and fed to people by social media.
This brings us to our next point which reminds us of the fact that you will have to reflect on what identity means. You probably think that identity is about your characteristics and personality traits – for example, being friendly, open, and introverted. Personality is also about what you do. Your personal project plays a crucial role on the human being you aspire to be. Through these projects you can choose a path in life and discover that your personality is more changeable than you think.
“If you do not like where you are, just picture where you want to be”
This is a quote taken from the movie Wonder, which is about a child born with facial deformities and his experience meeting the outside world despite his circumstances. I want to promote that you can use external factors as an advantage, use it to learn what you like and aspire to be from other people’s behaviors. In comparison to how people can learn to act "out of character" in certain given situations. For example, there are plenty of actors and performers who are shy and withdrawn in private but turn into something completely different when they step onto the stage. Many people, for example, in their professional role can develop qualities that they do not really have, simply because they want to do a good job. Initially, they are forced to fake it, but eventually the new personality trait increasingly becomes part of their actual identity.
In conclusion, try to pick up personal projects you enjoy and try to make them your own. However, be careful not to fall into the immense pressure of having to be the best of the best. Let me ask you the same question I did in the beginning: who are you?
