Identity Crisis !

9 Jul

What is an identity?

i was having a conversation today with Omar about the identity .. and how some people would for instance imitate rockers so i was like

: I guess people would do that till they find thier identity ! they are having an identity crisis !

Omar: so do you have an identity ?

Me: yeah .. i guess so ! actually i hope so !

am an apple

and now here i am rethinking of the question and actually i dont know !

cause first i need to know what is an identity?

is it a place i belong to?

or a person i am loyal to?

or is it an idea i live for?

or a vision i die for?

or is it having a reference that i live and abide by?

or is it all of the above?

so .. do you define the identity or the identity defines you?

and is it another way people invented to judge one another?

or is it seriously a problem?

Identity ..

is it the homeland? or home?

is it religion? or faith?

is it a family? or the sense of belonging?

is it love? or the joy that comes with it?

is it a person? or the sense of security that comes with them?

is it a friend? or the ” being accepted the way i am ” part?

is it to a rock-star? or the excitement that is around him?

and .. actually to be honest .. when i said the words ” Identity Crisis ” i guess i didnt comprehend how powerful these words are .. cause right now .. i feel like am having an ”  identity crisis “ moment !

Though .. maybe just maybe after writing down all these questions ..

i think .. or again i hope i have an idea of what might be my identity.. that is IF am asking the right questions in the first place ..

so again ..

what is Identity?

    i think an identity is were u belong like as my good mate Layne Staley said yet i fight yet i fight this battle all alone no one to cry to, no place to call home . i dont know if i gone make sence but disciples of the profet mohamad pbuh they had an identity they knew where they goin they knew what they want and where they were unlike me and many others we r stuck in the middle no idea where the fuck r we why the hell r we here for and where should we go from here for god sack !! yah i know the come back we r here to worship god thats why he created us to start with we should do everything leads us to heaven and among the road we have to face ups and downs knowing that god wouldnt give us what we cant bare spot on but in reality we werent prepared at all when we were children for any of this not at all there for we lost our selfs not just our identity

      then what do you think we can do ?
      cause what you’re saying means that we will always be strainded with no identity whatsoever?

      cause Omar now that you’re saying that means that even if our parents or society didnt prepare us for that now we are old enough to do that for least one step at a time ..

      or you think we are a lost cause and let us start with the new generation ?

    I think as long as you are thinking you’ll have idenity crisis . as long as you are happening you ‘ll continue grow and change and your sense of identity will be what you realize about yourself currently. look, limited minds will always have definite deffinition , unlimited minds will always be preplexed about it .

    I say one’s identity is them being exactly themselves. no pretenses .. that’s on the individual level

    on more bigger levels tho, I think that was religion’s role, but people .. i don’t know .. because of time or because of circumstances, gave up on religion and God ..

    and .. on those bigger levels, it went down hill ever since ..

      and now on the bigger level as you say it ..

      now what?

Have something to say?
