Discovering Identity: Who Am I, Who Are We?

Discovering Identity: Who am I, Who are we

Ever find yourself staring at the ceiling, wondering, “Who am I?” Well, buckle up, because we’re not just figuring that out—we’re taking the whole family along for the ride with us as we also answer another important question: “Who are we?” Grab your favorite mug, fill it with coffee, and settle into that cozy spot you love so much. Today is the day we discover the power of Identity.

The Magic of Knowing: Who Am I?

Ever heard the saying, “You can’t pour from an empty cup?” Well, understanding who you are is like making sure that cup is overflowing. Psalm 23, anyone? Let’s unpack four…seemingly small, but not really small at all…reasons as to why!

Ready? Let’s go!

Good Decisions

When you know your true self, making decisions can be really, quite simple. All those important values and beliefs you carry within you are like a built-in GPS, guiding you to choices that feel right in your gut. No more waffling or getting swayed by others—just confidence.

God-Confidence

Speaking of confidence! There’s a certain magic in knowing your strengths and weaknesses. It’s like having a secret weapon that helps you tackle challenges head-on. You know what you bring to the table, and you’re not shy about showing it. More importantly, you can empower someone else to step into those things you know they can own and succeed in way more than you can! And that, my friend, is what we call: good leadership.

Good Relationships

Knowing yourself means you can set healthy boundaries and communicate in effective and empathetic ways. Think of it as having a user manual for your own emotions and needs, which you can share with others. This leads to deeper, more meaningful connections where everyone feels seen and heard.

Good Health

Living authentically kicks stress and anxiety to the curb. When you’re true to yourself, there’s no need for masks or constant approval-seeking and people-pleasing. It’s just you, living your best life, no apologies needed. Talk about freedom!

The Adventure of Self-Discovery

Starting the journey to understand yourself might seem daunting, but trust us, it’s worth it. And look! We made this handy list of next steps to help get you started:

Who Are We? Discovering Your Family’s Identity

Just like knowing yourself is vital, understanding your family’s identity can bring you closer and create a powerhouse of unity. This is actually a really big deal… like huge. What most people don’t know is, a family’s identity is what shapes the individual identities within it. I don’t know how old you are, maybe you’re a parent or maybe, you don’t have a family of your own just yet. Regardless of your current family setting, every one of us can look back on our upbringing and clearly see the influence and impact our family had on who we are today. It’s kind of mind-blowing if you think about it. The conversation surrounding the importance of families raising and leading the next generation is basically non-existent. Especially in the context of “Family Identity.”

The reality is, we’ve become so busy scrolling, typing, comparing, and disconnecting that we fail to ever consider that we’re currently raising an entirely new society within the very walls of our own homes…But, we digress.

So, here’s why it’s important for your family to answer the question, “Who are we?”

Unity

When your family knows who they are collectively, it’s like forming an unbeatable team. You’re working towards common goals with shared values and beliefs. It’s not that you all have to be the same—what’s important is being together. That’s how we raise up a new generation and someday, society, that knows how to build healthy relationships and effectively problem-solve with a team. Make sense?

Communication

Understanding your family’s identity makes talking and resolving conflicts a lot smoother. This is another big one! You’ll find it easier to support each other through tough times and celebrate wins together…and won’t this be an invaluable skill for your child to instill in his or her own family someday? We think so!

Resilience

A strong family identity builds resilience. You’re better equipped to handle life’s curveballs because you face them together, drawing strength from your collective identity.

Security

Knowing who you are as a family gives each member a sense of belonging and security. It’s like having a rock-solid foundation, no matter what storms come your way. If you know anything about the effects of a person believing they’re alone in life, you know this one is crucial for all humanity—a sense of belonging begins in the family, from birth all the way to graduation.
