What is Your Identity Tied To?


There are so many different things that are in the back of your mind when you're applying as a pre-PT that really affect how you do. Let’s talk about identity crisis. 

An identity crisis is in short, when you have this moment where you really don't know who you are anymore. It's tied to something that really doesn't define you, but you lead yourself to believe it.

What does that mean?

We're all human beings, but as a pre-PT applying to PT school you've been gifted with the ability to be you. When we go through certain obstacles many times we associate those obstacles with who we have become. Whether it's the GRE (fourth time taking it or fifth time taking it) or being rejected and looking at that and saying, “that's just who I am.” You might even be thinking, “last year I applied and I felt like I did everything in my power to have the best possible application. But it just didn't work out. So, I'm trying again this year, but I have even more doubts because now I'm seeing all of my classmates moving forward and they’re a year ahead of me. I'm having more doubts because I'm hearing a lot of things from people that are close to me that are saying, ‘Hey, just don't feel too bad. If you don't get in you can try something else’.” That's creating more doubts. There’s pressure placed on us to be perfect in everything. However, you have to realize that the things that you're experiencing, whether good or bad, you have to start learning how to detach yourself from those being your identity. The experiences, fears, and anxieties that are being attached to this identity crisis, where you're saying, “all my failures, all my fears of what might go wrong, I'm attaching them to me.” Maybe someone put those on you. Maybe you put them on yourself, but they are not you. Don't attack yourself and your successes. Take a deep breath and just let go of that identity, let go of the failures and anxieties, the fears, let go of them and put them in a box. 


Remember ...

  • Your identity is not your GPA.
  • Your identity is not the GRE that's been giving you nightmares. 
  • Your identity is not whether or not you get accepted this cycle. 
  • Your identity comes with you being you; the heart that you have and the energy that you bring into a room.
