share my feelings or express them. I’m always worried about people’s opinions or making someone angry, which is probably from my dad being verbally abusive that I never say what it is on my mind. From going from one home to another I adapt very easily to wherever I go and I always fit in to the environment and what’s going on around me. I take orders very well and I’m a very organized person and like to make checklists for everything. My father being very strict I believe brought on those habits because I have to have a checklist and a planner with me at all times. I have multiple friends but I don’t necessarily hang out with them on a regular basis. I maintain our relationship and check in but I don’t go into personal details of any sort. I always put on a front and never let anyone break down the walls I have worked hard to build up. My personality is built around my life experiences and hopefully with more positive experiences in the future I will be able to change my personality to one that is stronger and more compassionate and the willing to let go of things and start over with someone new.

This issue started back in my childhood but I’m still dealing with those emotions even now 15 years later. Through research Erikson has stated that issues and developmental issues canbe resolved at any stage. But in my opinion in order to go from one stage to another the issue needs to be resolved or you haven’t completely moved on from that stage. For example, I am currently facing issues with the seventh stage of his development, Generativity vs. Stagnation as well as the sixth stage, Intimacy vs. Isolation. I personally believe that I am still having issues with identity crisis because I haven’t figured out exactly who I am or what I should be doing with my life. It feels as if I’m just in a constant routine. I am married but have serious marital problems because of this issue. I’d rather be alone and deal with my problems myself and I’m always wanting to do things on my own because of my independence. With that I also have a son
