The word ‘Self’ possesses an abstract definition yet we discover our ‘selves’ through learning and also observation of our own body and its conditions; this indicates personal identity and also becomes the cornerstone of self-understanding.

In childhood, identity is constructed through imitation of one’s parents and as we age, influenced by the growing knowledge and environment as well as increasing self-determination, we finally realize and understand the importance of self and identity.
