In Sammy’s case, there are a couple of problems that she has. I am going to illustrate them and suggest some possible solutions.
First of all, I’ve found that Sammy is getting lost in herself. She is confused by the question of “Who am I?” She doesn’t understand herself clearly as she even doesn’t know what she likes and dislikes.
