Defining Our Identities: Why Our Job Title Doesn’t Define Who We Are

We often allow our identities to be shaped by the world around us. We are told who we are based on our job title and the roles that we play in society. But the truth is, who we are is so much more than that.

Webster defines identity as “the fact of being who or what the person or thing is.” But it’s more than that. Identity is the qualities, beliefs, and personality that make up a person, giving them their individuality. It’s the sum of our experiences, our values, and our dreams. It’s our true self; it’s who we are at our core.

Embracing our identities and true self beyond the job title

So often, when someone asks us who we are, our first response is to tell them what we do for a living, whether it’s a salesperson, a teacher, or a stay-at-home mom. But the reality is our job title and what we do for work do not define who we are. It’s just a small part of the larger puzzle. 

We are so much more than our job title. We are unique individuals with our own strengths, weaknesses, and passions. We are the rule makers of our own lives, and it’s up to us to decide who we want to be and how we want to define ourselves.

Why it’s important to define our own identities and embrace our individuality

There is only one sentence that truly defines who we are: “I am a child of God.” This is something that is deeper and more meaningful than any job title or role that you play in society. It reminds you of your worth, your value as a person, and your true self no matter what you do for a living.

Conclusion: You get to define who you are

Let’s embrace our identities and remember that who we are is so much more than what we do. Let’s set the rules for who we want to be and not let our job title define us. Let’s embrace the unique qualities and characteristics that make up our individuality and who we are and not be afraid to show the world our true selves.
