What makes you, you? Is there a part deep inside of you that no one understands? Have you found your tribe, or are you a unique human being? Or is it more complicated than that?
In the last few decades, a combination of individualism, the internet and the culture war has, for many of us, brought our feelings about our own and other people’s identities to the fore.
