We naturally fear change and transformation, but there is a more sinister source of our chronic stress.
Last year you wrote an essay about what you called the “often-wrenching process of change.” (Change and the Process of Transformation August 15, 2011). I think there is a marketing/consumerist aspect to our fears. I think the fear of “being yourself” and wanting to retain that fantasy viewpoint is all about the fear that your real self is NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
