To be born is to begin dying.
Deep Flow Retreats
To become who you are is to always be in the process of dying to one way of being so that you can become something else. Not everyone becomes who they are, however. Instead, many people try to make something fixed and stable out of themselves—a doctor, an American, a mother, a father. But, as Sartre would argue, we are in essence, none of these things. Instead, our essence is in a constant state of self-creation and change.
To pretend otherwise, to pretend that we have achieved the stability of a thing, is to be in what Sartre calls bad faith. To become static is to be rigid, to become like a corpse. By contrast, it is the essence of life to be dynamic and changing. Nietzsche and Kaag do not offer themselves as models of ultimate success. But he has pushed himself further along the path, dying to one way of life to be reborn to a new one. And the road leads ever onward.
Unlike Nietzsche, Hesse seems to offer hope for the possibility of a conclusion. Perhaps Nietzsche would reject such a story as offering false metaphysical comfort, and maybe he would be right. But with no end in sight and only perpetual striving ahead, we face a fate not much better than Sisyphus, condemned to roll a rock to the top of a hill every day only to see it roll back down. If, unlike Sisyphus, the struggle to the heights is not enough to make us happy, we may look to our children.

We want to protect our children and keep them from making the same mistakes we made. But ultimately, we must realize that each child must walk his or her own path to become who they are. Back Psychology Today. Back Find a Therapist. Back Get Help.
