Abstract [sv]

This study aims to find out what happens with the roles that are seemingly left behind. Are there roles that are harder or easier to exercise? Available roles with us through life and affect our future decisions or we switched completely away from them and create new roles based on the situations we find ourselves in at the moment? The aim is also to see how the relationship looks like between closed roles and new roles in life. To try to find this out, I have used the narrative method. The study is based largely on Goffman's theories of roles, behind and above the front- and back stage. It seems to change roles and adapt to the new situations is relatively simple for this particular respondent, despite the severity of roles. However, when it relates to roles that have the responsibility makes adapting more difficult.
