Identity encompasses our sense of self, as shaped by our upbringing, our experiences, our culture, the people around us, especially the ones we grew up with and then later who we choose to be around. All these things help mold who we become and continue to be. Identity is knowing who you are at the very core, and always trying to make decisions and actions based from your truth, so that you are in harmony with yourself and feel connected and in alignment.
