Who Am I? I have a Face of a Stranger… No One Knows Who I Am… It’s Just Me… It’s Been a While… All These Things That I’ve Done…I’m not the person I want to be.
Peer pressure changes you as a person and the the “real” you is lost. An In these days, we see many of the youth doing things in High School and College such as drugs, alcohol, adultery, etc, that they would never see themselves do during the years that lead into that time. Many times they change their whole “personality” and who they are as person during the ages of the youth, but in truth the “old” self is still in you, but lost. So your in an “Identity Crisis”.
Definition of Identity Crisis:
Those who emerge from the adolescent stage of personality development with a strong sense of identity are well equipped to face adulthood with confidence and certainty. “Those who fail to achieve a cohesive identity-who experience an identity crisis-will exhibit a confusion of roles,” not knowing who they are, where they belong, or where they want to go. This sort of unresolved crisis leaves individuals struggling to “find themselves.” They may go on to seek a negative identity, which may involve crime or drugs or the inability to make defining choices about the future.
