The postmodern perspective (if you even believe there is such a thing) would say that there isn’t a stable identity.
A postmodern epistemology declares that there is nothing that is fixed or stable thus identity cannot be a stable and fixed structure. Rather, it is seen as a narration of one’s life – a narrative identity where the narrative must be interpreted and constructed and reinterpreted and reconstructed throughout every experience. Individuals create narrations of our experiences and in doing so construct identity. In this perspective, “The truth claims of these identity-creating narrations do not depend on any correspondence with the external reality” (Roesler, 2008, p. 425).
