Who am I?
3. My family and me


We are all on a journey called "life". For most of us, the only constant companion we have ever had since we embarked on this journey is our own self. But in the midst of life, we often lose touch with our self. The purpose of these worksheets is to help us tune in to ourselves, and touch base with where and who we are. These are exercises in self-reflection, offered as tools to assist in the process of "looking within", becoming self-aware through self-questioning and an inner examination of our thoughts, actions, emotions, etc. to find out who we are and what makes us unique.


This third worksheet "Who am I?" attempts to make us more aware of the various influences around us and the manner in which they have determined who we are and how we see ourselves.

  1. If I were to list the characteristics and the values that I have received from my family (genetically or by upbringing) and my (sub) culture,
    • Which characteristics/values do I identify with most?
    • Which characteristics/values I would not like to identify with?
  2. What did I receive from my upbringing that I definitely want to change?
  3. Can I identify something in myself that is uniquely mine?
