Our identity determines how we see ourselves.
How we see ourselves determines how we behave.
When we lose our identity, we lose our roots, uniqueness, purpose, focus and destination.
Many people, groups, institutions, churches and nations are gradually losing their unique identities and focus all in the name of uncritical imitation to please their audience and members.
Valuing and keeping your approved identity do not merely make you bad, static and outmoded.
Only imitate to improve your identity, do not imitate to destroy it.
