An identity crisis is when an individual loses a sense of personal sameness and historical continuity, said Erik Erikson. We, the facebook generation as they call us, face this conflict everyday. Choices rather. Choice about whom to love and whom to distance, about what to dream and what not to, how to tell the intolerable from what is acceptable. When to change. And why?
Faced with these questions everyday, we search for a constant in this ever changing reality. We fight for some, ignore a few and in most cases we just struggle to comprehend.
Kicking off a series titled 'Crise d'identité' debating some such questions, written in the form of dialogues between a twenty something facebooker ('me') and his family (dad, mom, sister, brother) & friends. It is an attempt to comprehend, not to preach. Do join the debate!

coming soon: Part I - "Is rebellion the new tradition?"
Me: You gave me the wings dad, but you want to see me fly my own course?
Dad: You shall fly son. But you have to be aware that skies are full of vultures and hunters prowl the fields below.
