Pepi – “Identity” (And a bit about Self-Esteem)

Hello! My name is Pepi Mercado and for the Grade 7 Wellness (H Block), I cHello! My name is Pepi Mercado and for the Grade 7 Wellness (H Block), I chose Identity as my Health Buzz topic. I chose Identity as my topic because I have had a very messy history with my own identity and I think that everybody and anybody can benefit from some inside knowledge and advice. If you’re wondering about what I mean by “a messy history”, I mean that when I was going through a very rough stage in my life, I had a very hard time staying true to myself and who I was as a person. A way that these connections have expanded my learning was simply experience, therefore knowing how to recognize which areas of struggles with one’s Identity can be solved with which types of strategies. (Hard to believe, I know, but that was English.) I think that this topic is very important to me because it was -and still is- a very large part of my life. I was going through the Emotional Changes of Puberty when I went through what’s called an Identity Crisis and I almost became a different person entirely. This can easily affect any teenager -if they spend lots of time thinking about what they will do with their life- because a teenager’s daily life and health habits are changed based off of who they are. EG: Some people may dream of becoming an Olympic Contestant, meaning their daily life may involve lots of exercise, which affects a person’s wellbeing, physical state and self-esteem.

What did you learn about this issue? When I looked deeper into the effects of this issue, I learnt that the causes were also variant. Self-Esteem issues may lead to problems with Identity because a person does not feel they are doing things correct, which may then lead to thoughts that their life is completely incorrect. This is similar to the mindset of those who are clinically depressed or simply just cynical. If I had a summary for Identity Issues, I would’ve said that it’s your own world crumbling in front of you. After research and more open observations, I would say that it’s a whole bunch of negative thoughts directed toward yourself based off of your own made-up misconceptions of yourself. I believe that those negative thoughts can really affect a person’s emotional health status and their social health. It affects my thoughts about wellness because at first I thought wellness was just a “How to deal with physical stuff in puberty” class, but it’s actually a time where people can learn about changes in life and now I’m thinking about how we can help one another overcome hard times.
