To Live A Lie, Or Not To

Yesterday I came across this from Carl Gustav Jung:
"......we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie........"
These words infer that, because inwardly we are changing all the time, to continue to live as if we are not, is to live a lie.

However, the price paid for living the changes can include the break-up of marriages and like relationships, break-up of friendships, ostracism from family and from society, the loss of one's livelihood, and even early death.

It's safer to ignore change, than not to.
