To talk about getting better – about wanting to change in ways that we might choose and prefer – is to talk about pursuing the life we want; in the full knowledge that our pictures of the life we want, of our version of a good life, come from or come out of what we have already experienced. (We write the sentences we write because of the sentences we have read.)
How can we talk differently about how we might want to change, knowing that all change precipitates us into an uncertain future?
In this companion book to On Wanting to Change, Adam Phillips explores how we might get better at talking about what it is to get better.
