Multiple identities

You don't just have one identity, as you relate to different groups and values you probably take on a slightly different identity.  Also, how you feel about yourself can be influenced by the value your friends and peers place on different identities. 

The obvious and not-so-obvious

Some identities are obvious and you have no choice but to own them; these include gender and ethnicity. Others are hidden and depend on you acknowledging and owning them before others know; such as your political views and sexuality. We can all struggle with our identity from time to time and are forever re-defining it.

It's important you connect with those who see and respect you for who you are, rather than who they think you are.
