Does identity matters? (+,-)

I know that I’ve been discussion quite often about identity, help culturally and nationally. At some point, seek more and more now, stuff I don’t think identity really matters anymore. Why? For one of the reason, I think we belong to certain images of identity without our agreement. We’re born in it. We belong to our ancestor’s identity even if we disagree with the contents. We then continue living with the identity that been perceived but without us realizing it, we seldom try to make changes, adjusting and fitting it in our way of life. We then alter it and perhaps in future it might become another identity. I don’t think anyone can preserve an identity. It’s all up to us!
