I perceive the self differently than many individuals. Although people may agree with the meaning I have, many people will not. Individuals have different ideas of what the self is in that the self can be defined in thousands of ways and expressed in millions of ideas. What exactly is the “self” and how is it determined? If self is determined by the people we interact with, than is our “self” apart of them? I feel that self is about who we are, emotionally and physically. We grow and learn each day, becoming ourselves because we are supposed to. We as individuals are supposed to learn every day and take that knowledge with us to better us and our “self”. The more we know and the more we understand, the more we may be able to define ourselves. If we can interact with others and engage in conversations and feel comfortable with ourselves, then maybe we can provide the definition of self and be content with it. In order to create ourselves, we have been socialized through different factors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
