Are You Having An Identity Crisis

An identity crisis is a period of uncertainty and confusion in which a person’s sense of identity becomes insecure, typically due to a change in their expected aims or roles in society. We have all heard the phrase ” Identity Crisis”. When we hear it, we often think of psychology; however, the identity crisis I am speaking of is spiritually. One day you wake up and you realize there’s something different about yourself. You don’t fit in with the crowd. You have a low-tolerance level and deep down inside you feel like you should be doing more. You think different. The way you speak is different. Your emotions are different. Have you ever found yourself in any of these situations? I know I have and I am still dealing with this now! I’ve come to the realization that I may be having an identity crisis. As I continue on my spiritual journey, on my journey back to me; As I continue to learn and to grow, I am noticing so many things. The stuff that use to excite me, isn’t so exciting anymore. The people that I use to love to be around are so annoying now.  As I struggle to let go of the old me and embrace the woman that I am becoming, I realize that are some things and some people who just can not handle it. These people could be friends, family or long-time co-workers. When the people around you are having a hard time accepting the new you, it leaves you feeling frustrated, overwhelmed and confused. This leads to an identity crisis and a people pleasing mentality. It also leads to the question, will I go on trying to please people or am I ready to start doing what’s acceptable and pleasing to God?
