might be a difficult enough period without adding in the concept of "other"
or "different" that frequently accompanies a child's self image. The
psychological architecture of a child is almost finished, and how they view
themselves by then influences all of their subsequent actions and behaviors
in life. Many men and women eventually have some kind of struggle with a particular
facet of identity or self, and when there was an unsupportive or hostile environment
during their developing years it will add to the difficulties that are met when
trying to resolve these issues. If such an environment was encountered, how
does the child through his or her own devices develop a strong sense of self
reliance, identity, and purpose in life? It seems impossible, and yet it happens
frequently. Some of these people appear to create themselves with complete indifference
to the society at large.
