We organize the fragmented pieces of our psyches into ordered composites that we represent to ourselves and others. Truly, we are many internal pieces of often conflicting viewpoints. We struggle to make sense of how we oscillate between extremes within ourselves. On one hand we are instructed to be seen and not heard, to avoid too much attention, to minimize the potential for jealousy amongst our peers. On the other hand, we are encouraged to express ourselves grandly, to be ourselves, to be identified for who we are. Similarly, we war within ourselves over what others may think of us if they really knew who we are.
