Learning to accept yourself is more important than making people accept you. It’s how you see yourself that really matters. Living life every day with the same routine, it’s normal that one tends to start resonating with what they think they are supposed to be? who they are? and the whole confusion about ‘identity crisis’ sinks in
Identity crisis is basically a period of uncertainty and confusion in which one may start questioning your sense of self or identity. It also deals with sexual orientation as an enduring pattern of romance or attraction towards a person of opposite sex or gender, or the same, or both.
Adolescence is a time of hormonal change. It is the dawn of changes at puberty that involves both body and mind. Even thinking about someone attractive can cause sexual arousal. These feelings can be intense, confusing, or even overwhelming. The different categories of sexuality are:
Homosexual- It means attracted to the same gender.
Heterosexual- It refers to a person who is only attracted to the opposite gender commonly known as straight.
Bisexual- It refers to being attracted to both the genders(Male/Female).
Pansexual- Someone who is attractive to any gender.
Asexual- It refers to someone who doesn’t feel any type of sexual attraction at all.
Queer- People who identify themselves apart from cis men and cis women (LGBT)
Transgender- It can be both trans-men and trans-women.
When we talk about exposure to the Identity crisis, equality is one of the major Human rights that needs to be addressed. As a human being, it is natural to feel! it’s important to accept the person they way they are, who they love, what their choices are no matter what.
Identity crisis can also drive one into confusion and isolation from the world leading to the development of mental health difficulties. With the changing time and new generation parents who thought they couldn’t possibly accept their children with their sexual orientation are surprised to find that they too can reach a place of understanding. This was not the situation earlier. It was unacceptable by society and the person usually went through stress, anxiety, trauma, and various other mental health issues.
We live in a world of trends and hashtags, the digital space is ever-changing. Our story is a big part of our true self. It is very important to understand the purpose of living. A lot of times people need help, they need someone to understand them, support them, and guide them throughout.
It’s so much in buzz because of the same reasons. Today the world understands these concepts, and there are many who say both facts and myths about the same. While the internet is a safe space to be who they are, it also is a place of judgment, hate, and trauma. There is much more confusion than before and people are learning, relearning, and unlearning continuously. Hence it’s important that they have someone to talk to, they need to have that open space to be, to express, and to identify themselves. Because it’s absolutely OKAY to live life at one’s own pace. It’s OKAY to take some time and take a break. But it’s definitely not Okay to rush things and get lost in the race.

At Mitti Ke Rang, we started with a COVID-19 community support fundraising, as an emergency response to provide a safety net to families. This will help them survive in the lockdown period. We aim to directly support these families by providing a minimum wage, through transferring the same into their accounts or partner with local NGO, Organisation, Fellow, or a Volunteer, and support them with groceries.
