on identity…

Individuals identify in many different ways: gender, race, national origin, religious affiliation, personality preference, educational attainment, socio-economic class, and much more.

I find it intriguing that people who have attained some measure of success, whatever they define that to be, tend to identify themselves as either lucky, privileged or blessed.  It makes me reflect on what the challenge has been for every adult to attain each of the following:

  • Work
  • Food
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • A support network
  • A sense of belonging

Every life has a story to tell.

How do you identify?
Are you lucky, privileged or blessed?
Why?
