As a part of a working society I held several different statuses, socially defined positions an individual occupies. While growing up I maintained many statuses that helped shape my future. I have always had many statuses at one time, or better known as a status set. I was a very active member in the Art club, a student, a best friend, and a girlfriend, just to name a few. Each of these statuses involved different roles, behavioral expectations for a particular status that is defined by both society and an individual. Maintaining the roles of these statuses involved myself upholding a role set, a number of roles attached to a particular status. For example, as a student I was responsible for keeping my grades up as well as completing my assignments in a timely and orderly manner. Maintaining these statuses, and roles within these statuses, constantly helped shape me into the person that I am now, and realize that I am responsible for the roles and statuses that I take on in my life.
