Do you know who you are? Do you know who God created you to be?
Most people don’t know, but they are searching. I call this an identity quest.
How about you? Are you in search of your identity?
You Are Not Alone
If you’re on an identity quest, know that you are not alone. You are in very good company. Many of us are on the same journey. There is a whole tribe of us, and it grows bigger every day.
Getting to know your own heart is a key to discovering your true identity. I hope you will find some keys here to help you along your journey.
When we are not in touch with our true identity, we can experience all kinds of difficulties. These come from the lies we believe, or from things we hold onto that we need to let go of. Our goal with the identity quest is to help find freedom and live in true Peace in all areas of our lives.
In Search of Identity
These are common struggles of people who are searching for their identity and their tribe:
“I feel the emotions of everyone around me and it’s unbearable. I’m afraid to go into a crowded store because I’ll get overwhelmed. I’ve got the weight of the world on my shoulders.”
“When I hear certain people’s names, I growl. I’ve blocked them on Facebook. I’m still angry at things they did to me. When I see them, I avoid them. When I hear about something good that’s happened to them, I roll my eyes. I have a bitter taste in my mouth just thinking about them.”
“I feel overwhelmed all the time. When the slightest thing goes wrong, I want to curl up in a ball and cry. I feel like everything is too hard, like I just can’t do it. Some things that have happened to me, I can’t get them out of my mind. I feel like I keep re-living them.”
“I have too many things to do and I can’t get it all done. People are always asking me to do things and I can’t say no. I’m worn out. I can’t get a break. Why won’t they leave me alone?”
“When I lie down at night, my brain doesn’t turn off. I can’t sleep.”
“It’s hard for me to feel what other people are going through. I can’t understand what they’re feeling. I can’t relate to them. I end up criticizing them, and I don’t know why. People ask me why I’m so analytical, why I can’t empathize.”
“I feel disconnected from everything. Like I’m always on the outside looking in. I get angry for no reason. I feel stuck.”
“When people say good things about me, I can’t believe them. I can see good things about other people, but not about myself. I keep criticizing myself. I say the same self-defeating things over and over. I can’t seem to break through this.”
What Is Your Struggle?
What is your struggle? Knowing what holds you back is the key to moving forward. You can’t get free if you don’t know what is blocking you.
If you see yourself in any of these situations, or if you simply want to know who you are and to live as the person God created you to be, join us on our Identity Quest.
