Inflexible Identities Stunt Personal Growth
Characterizing yourself as a specific someone can give meaning and a sense of purpose to your life, but don’t get fooled into thinking it’s who you really are.

It can separate you from others and cause feelings of superiority and inferiority. When it comes to the identity card, if yours keeps you inside too small a box…
Don’t play it.
