Battle scars

Published by Kea Ortega on

the ugly writers

We can’t choose where we come from, but we can choose where we go from there.

Stephen Chbosky

My life has always been an open book. I grew up not being ashamed of my story because I have always proven that I am more than the unfortunate circumstances dictated by my past.

Two years ago, the world drained out the sanity I kept for 21 years. I witnessed two of the most important women in my life die in front of me. With a license as a registered nurse at hand, I really felt useless. Ever since that devastating loss, things were never the same. I was in constant search for inner peace. Venturing the world here and there, going to different places, traveling, trying a lot of new things, and simply chasing every temporary high to ease the pain. I started to rewrite my story as I please. And so, I braved my sea of doubts and decided to chase my ultimate dream and become a doctor.

The pain really changed me and eventually, I found solace in being numb especially when I find people who I trusted throwing shade at me for stories of my past. I lost interest in trying to please people or making them understand my story. If they were meant to stay in my life, things wouldn’t feel forced. I found myself loving the sound of my feet walking away from things that are not meant for me. Sometimes I just couldn’t imagine how easily I trust the wrong people, but then I learned that I am me for me and not for anyone else and that setting high walls to protect me isn’t bad after all. Everybody will always have something to say, but not everybody matters. Never stop being you and always strive to be the bigger and better person. Don’t stoop down to their level because what makes them happy is you giving a damn on how they spend time pestering your life.

This is me, with all my battle scars, and flaunting it. Because without it, I wouldn’t be where I am right now. I wouldn’t be this strong if I was not shattered into a million pieces. Putting myself back piece by piece is an everyday battle, but I’m loving it.

At the stage of being a young adult, I have sought things about myself creating my own identity. In a study, it says that a individual can create self-concept about his/herself through simple use of acronym ADRESSING (Age, Disability Status, Religion, Ethnicity/race, Sexual orientation, Socioeconomic status, Indigenous background, National Origin, and Gender). Thankfully, through this I’ve learned that: In terms of AGE, I am still considered young limiting me to the things I can do, but for me I’m looking forward to many other things that I can be able to achieve in the future and just enjoy my life… Read more »

One’s identity cannot be recognize immediately. But can judge right away. Without knowing their real personalities and pleasant attitudes. That is the problem of every one of us. We kept on judging their small failures instead of appreciating big successes. You can know who you are by yourself and by the people surrounds you. Identity is defined as how one sees oneself and one’s power privilege which can be related to numerous cultural identities. ADRESSING. This model of cultural influences and relationship to the social construct of power, can assist me in understanding myself and patients. Some of the letters… Read more »

As a person who is currently in the process of being an adult, I discovered a lot of new things about myself. Things that I never thought I have as a person. There’s this point in my life where I experienced a lot of challenges that drained me, which is also the point where I learn to understand myself and environment more. Here are some of the demographic profile that could give you a gist about myself more: Age: 17 years old. Disability Status: Thankfully, I am not physically or mentally disable. I don’t have any sort of disability since… Read more »

Everyone has different identities. For me, I usually identify myself by my last name and my ethnicity. However, the most important part of my identity is my last name. This is most important to me because last names carry on through generation to generation. If you come across someone, and they notice your last name, you want to make sure you carry that name with pride because they’ll compare you to the previous generations before you. When I come across people and they ask for my last name, they immediately know someone in the family, therefore you always want to… Read more »

One’s identity of a human being cannot be easily or mentally judged by another person. We all had an impression to a person and feelings for them as well. without knowing the real attitude or personality, there are false misunderstanding between the two of you and that is our main problem nowadays. An Identity is the state or fact of remaining the same one or ones, as under varying aspects or conditions.Basically we cannot give judgement right away to every person surrounds you, you clearly must know your self before others. Personal identity is one’s own sense of attributes and… Read more »

As Richard Grant said, “The value of identity of course is that so often with it comes purpose”. In the process of getting to know who we are, identity will always remain. It is the uniqueness of everybody. I have different aspects in myself that tend to help shape my personal identity. ADDRESSING is one of the models of the cultural influences and their relationship to the social construct of power. It differs in age as a teenager; we have less power than adults so we need to respect them though we need to respect every person that we are… Read more »

No one really know someone fully and genuinely. The one and only person who truly know each of us is ourselves. We define ourself and we create our own identity. We may seem similar to each other but we are indeed individually unique that makes us value more ourselves and our identity. This method is use to easily communicate your identity to other people , simply telling how unique indually you are, this method is called ADRESSING, where A is for Age: I’m 19 years old turning 20 tomorrow. Yeah you red it right, tomorrow is my birthday. The one… Read more »

Identity, it is who we are and how others view us. But there are some cases that how others view us is different from who we really are. We can make a concept of ou identity by the use of this what we call ADRESSING where A stands for Age, D for Disability, R for Religion, E for Ethnicity and race, S for Socioeconomic status and another S for Sexual orientation, I for Indigenous Background, N for National Origin and lastly, G for Gender. I’m already 19 but to be honest my mother sees me like I’m only 10 years… Read more »

As a person who is in the stage of adolescent, we experienced different identity because we are all different in other perspective. Sometime I think my identity is good but for others, who judged someone’s identity easily, in their perspective it is bad or different from what I think. Through the ADDRESSING framework I can list all my identity. Age: 19 years old Nothing much happened in my week but I can say that I’m still not that mature in term of thinking and my actions. And also as day passed, I really think that being a young or child… Read more »

A person’s identity is shaped by many different aspects. Family, culture, friends, personal interests and surrounding environments are all factors that tend to help shape a person’s identity. Some factors may have more of an influence than others and some may not have any influence at all. I would like to introduce myself to you by using the “ADRESSING FRAMEWORK”. For my 18 years of existence, I’m not the kind of person who is extremely friendly, and talented. I don’t have enough confident that’s why I’m shy to learn new things. But people tend to say that I’m kind of… Read more »

I think every person has their own identity and beauty. We have our own uniqueness and being different is what us really beautiful. As we grow, we experience and adapt things that builds our own identity. How we see’s our self relfects what others see us. Now a days, some people compare us to others, but littled did they know that we are different, and we have our own identity. If we are all the same, it would be boring. In our UTS subject, there is a model that can assist us in understanding our self. It is called ADDRESSING,… Read more »

For me, “Identity” is so confusing in a way that sometimes even our own self can’t find our true identity. People may tell you that you are like this, that, and so on but you know in yourself that you’re neither of those things. You might feel like you are the opposite of the things that people compare to you but it doesn’t mean that it happened just because you are not showing the real you in front of other people. No. Because it happens when people don’t try to know you more or maybe we, people, have different sense… Read more »

We are commonly perceived by other people when we started to involve over the course of their lives. My identity would definitely show them a part of me when I tell them basically my name, age, interest, ambition, and where I came from. In contrast, those doesn’t define the sum of an individual’s knowledge and understanding of his or her self-identity. It is how you see yourself or identifying yourself with someone or something else. A representation of different aspect of identity such as age, disability, religion, ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, indigenous background, national origin, and gender or the… Read more »

Every person has its own identity and beauty. Everyone being different is what is really beautiful. If we were all the same, it would be boring. This line was somehow remarkable for me because it is true that we, the people, are unique in our own ways. Since identity was the topic for the week two of my Understanding the Self class, I want to share something about what has happened to me within this entire week. Firstly, in addressing my age. Sometimes, in our life people who are older than us usually takes advantage of the younger ones because… Read more »

The most exciting adventure in our lives is discovering who we really are and finding our true identity. This identity will be shape through a process of self-discovery, self-awareness to self-actualization and self-acceptance. We must wander beyond who we think we are to allow the authentic self to reflect our identity. We should step outside our comfort zone, to peer through the reality if we wish to discover our inner self. Our true identity may be found somewhere between our imagined self and outside of our comfort zone. We, as the writer of this journey to our true identity can… Read more »

Every people in this world have different identities you cannot easily judged by other people. You can leave an impression to someone its either positive or negative but don’t expect it is real because you don’t know who really she/he are, maybe your impression to him/her is the opposite. An identity is the fact that someone or others has, you must have definitely know yourself before others. As of now, I’m on the process of being adult. I’m still discovering new things from myself. There’s a lot of challenges that might down on me, but I give all I got… Read more »

Age: 18
Disability: None
Religion: Christian
Ethnicity: I am a 200% Filipino
Social Class: Middle Class
Sexual Orientation: Pure and straight man
Indigenous background and National Origin: my mom is 100% Filipino and my dad is 100% Filipino so I’m 200% Filipino
Gender: Male

We are still young to experience many things we are in the stage of discovering, so in order to know our identity we should try the things the we haven’t tried before and learn from the experience so that we will truly know what satisfies us and then from that we may find the answer of what completes us.

Our identity makes us unique to one another. We are different to each other eventhough we’re all going through a lot of things. But the thing that identifies us is on how we handle things no matter how tough it may be, especially knowing our own self truthfully regardless the judgement of others onto us. Using the ADDRESSING it helps me to know more about my identity. Starting with Age: 17yrs old.Disabilities: luckily my physical, emotion, and mental state is in good condition. Religion: I’m a Roman Catholic and I have friends who have different religion like INC and Islam… Read more »

I am an 18 year old, non-disabled Christian Filipino who came from a middle class family. Some says I’m somewhat of a Bi but I still prefer the title of being a heterosexual. I grew up in Laguna where most of my ancestors lived. As a male-intersexed I sometimes find it quite confusing on defining who I am. When I first moved here in Manila, I found this place perplexing. For someone who grew up from a place filled with green fields and relaxing winds in the afternoon I was very new to all the hustle of busy peoples in… Read more »

Religion- I am proud to say that I am a member of Church of Christ where I always find peace and love with God. But I also respect others’ religion.

One’s identity is a profound topic to talk about. It is not a typical word with a definite meaning. It is like a quest everybody is dying to seek and understand. In a society that dictates what is normal and what is acceptable or not, people tend to compromise who they really are just to conform to the standards of the society they live in and to be honest, it really sucks. ADRESSING, being a pattern of cultural influences, addresses the main factors that affect a person’s distinctiveness. So here is mine: A for AGE, today is my birthday and… Read more »

The identity of one person cannot easily identified or even recognize especially nowadays in our present generation. Each one of us has different abilities and mindset on how we’re going to stand in front of many people but we are living in a judgemental country where most of them will judge you through your physical appearance and most likely your ability and disability. judgement of people always comes first where they will judge by not knowing who you really are.

They say I am very serious, quiet and snobbish. While, other people say I am jolly, funny and just happy. Some may think of me differently— be it negatively or positively— and I think that is completely fine as these perceptions make me different from others. As they say, this became my own ‘identity’. The identity that separates me from the world, and the identity that makes me unique in my own personal space and that of others.

I know that knowing one’s identity is really a hard thing to do. Identity is who a person is and the qualities that make them distuish from others. According to Hays, consideration of age, developmental disabilities, acquired disabilities, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, indigenous group membership, nationality, and gender contributes to a complete understanding of cultural identity.

Each one of us has their own identity. We have our own name, age, gender and such things that identify us. Life gives us our own identity by molding us because of some life challenges. It gives us people that bring us down in order to establish our strength to lift up ourself or things that weakens us and slowed us in order to boost up ourself.

Knowing oneself is the most difficult and important process you will go through life, it needs a deliberate patience and understanding of what is really going on inside and outside of yourself. If you don’t know yourself, then you will wander aimlessly throughout your existence in this world. Find it, hone it and your whole life will change in instant.

One’s identity will never be stated nor measured by other people but yourself. You are the one who shapes and enhances your capablities, character and attitude. An identity is something that leaves a reminder to people of who you really are. As a person, you are entitled to nurture yourself and find what’s your real identity- and it is only YOU, who can do it.

Sometimes, we cannot deny the fact that we easily judge the person based on what we really know and what we really see. We didn’t give them a chance to know them better. To tell you frankly, some of my friends now, told me that they judge me before because I’m quite and stuff. But now, they easily determined what was the reason why I am quite sometimes. Maybe because I’m not in the mood or I have a problem. Problem that we cannot tell to them directly because we don’t want them to get involve in our own problems.… Read more »

No one can actually know someone’s identity. Even I myself I am struggling in knowing someone’s identity. Being a simple person that experienced a lot of things, i experienced being deprived because of my age. Being young adult is hard because there are times that they will judge or compare you to a fully grown adult, that actually you don’t have any idea about it. Having a low social class also known as “batang masa” you will experience to be judge that you can’t do something that the higher class can do. Having a gender that is cannot accept of… Read more »

In the process of knowing ourselves fully, identity is really important. We should know who we really are and know where we really belong. In my case, as I grow older, I had some struggles in relation with age. Some people disregard me because of my age. Just because I was young, that means I’m not able to do what others can do. Some people rejected me because of my age even though I know myself that I can do better than others who are older than me. By struggling with this, I just prove that I can do better… Read more »

Identity is defined as who we really are as an individual. It was molded by different aspects in our lives. At this stage of my existence, number of queries began to hang in my mind thinking why we are having this kind of personality in the first place. I began to ask why we have things that are similar and as well as different to them.
