Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study that has investigated four people's experiences of making a physical change of life. With narrative depth interviews, the study was characterized by the informants own experience of their experiences and thoughts. With questions surrounding their experiences of alienation, belonging to the standard, people's attitude and prejudices against their appearance. The investigation revealed that the informants experienced shared experiences and things that separated them. The conclusion based on the people in this study was that people with low self-esteem are at greater risk for experiencing alienation. Despite the fact that a person belongs to the norm, the person can experience a dissatisfaction with themselves and still feel that they does not fit. The perception of self and self-esteem is improved not only by belonging to the norm. However, a person who belongs to the norm experience the benefits by including a friendly reception from their surroundings. The perception of others' prejudices and treatment does not always match the reality. It may be due to their own uncertainty in the person that makes misjudgments of their surroundings.
