Identity refers to our sense of who we are, and how we define ourselves. In a society filled with bias and discrimination, it’s more important than ever to have love for our true selves, and accept that of others. Positive identity development for all is difficult because of prejudice toward people of color, LGBTQ people, women, those with disabilities, undocumented people, those who aren’t Christian, and many other groups. There aren’t many spaces where people can safely discuss how aspects of their identities shape life experience, and their mental health. That’s why I’m here.
