And it is a process which we experience throughout life.  Individuation that one may achieve throughout their life is dependent on the environment in which one lives, culture, upbringing of the person, their exposure to the world, their own conscious and unconscious mind. Individuation is unique self-identity that differs from other individual. The development of the individuation is crucial during the upbringing of the child. Individuation process in a child can be negatively impacted when the parents do not take care of the feelings, choices and identities for their children. Difficult in individuation process may leads to unhealthy relations with others, challenges in professional life, poor decision-making skills and one find difficult to identify their goal of life.
