Becoming One with Yourself Time and Again

Developing Identity and Self-Esteem in a Complex World

Where did I come from? Who am I now? Where am I going? The question of our own identity is existentially significant. Identity always develops in the interaction with other people: in the relationship between ourselves and others, in the confrontation with what belongs to us and to the others. The development of the personality happens time and again anew – in a movement between the inside and the outside, between our own dreams, imagination, self-images and the world of the others. In this book, the renowned Jungian analyst and psychotherapist Verena Kast shows: In the mirror of other people, we can reflect on ourselves and are challenged to develop our identity – in the field of tension between autonomy and relatedness.
