Came across this http://www.brainpickings.org/2015/08...ampaign=buffer
the other day about key ideas on identity/belonging and found it to be an intriguing read.
I noticed that a lot of people around me tend to define themselves overwhelmingly through their jobs, which isn't the case at all for me.
Personally, my concept of self has changed with each move to a different country, though not drastically. For example, as a white person in a predominately white country, race might not play a big role in one's definition of self, but that can completely change when you move somewhere where your race is considered a minority. Same thing with gender and sexual orientation in certain jobs.
Which elements play major parts of your identity? (e.g. nationality, social activities, gender, race, sexuality, relationships, interests, job, ideas, hobbies).
Did those things change once you moved to Switzerland (or elsewhere)?
