Fitzgerald tells us of his first life regrets as a young man. He says that his two regrets are that he never was “big enough (or good enough) to play football in college, and at not getting overseas during the war”’ (“The Crack Up” 1). He was still a successful man at the time, starting his journey to fame and success, but couldn’t forgive himself for not being able to get to his goals.

), and his/her sense of self-worth or his/her self-esteem. An individual’s self concept is constantly changing as we interact with and react to all of the different people we each encounter in our daily lives. The variety of roles we each play or fulfill in our day-to-day lives help to shape and reinforce our own unique self concept.
