Riding a Maelstrom

When have you felt caught in a "northeaster," driven along by the wind? What happened? What did you learn from the situation? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1564).

Self-identity formation is far from merely a mental exercise. As in understanding IQ, we dare not preemptively delimit the multifarious nature of it.  Unfortunately for adherents of robotic efficiency, the development of human identity can be messy and replete with false starts and failures.  Yet, even these frustrating imperfections can lead to our eventual self-confidence, stamina, adaptability, and survival.
