While some of us can identify ourselves with ease, some also struggle with defining themselves, and some do not even know where to begin. The stages in life when people find and solidify their identity vary from person to person. An epiphany may come in your sophomore year of high school, or it may take a lifetime to discover the strengths and weaknesses of you character, the things you enjoy doing and ultimately, your identity.
Although high school is traditionally a time of self-searching, life is just as much about improving yourself as it is about finding out who you are. No matter where you are and when you begin, the progress toward self-discovery ebbs and flows. Everyone begins to find themselves at different times, and even so, only you have the power to shape your identity and future.
