When the structure of your mind is changed so radically, that can feel disorienting and give you the sensation that you don’t know yourself, and that you don’t know what’s really important to you. The thing is, you do. Yet what you’re doing in this era of your life is learning how to perceive that self-knowledge outside the framework of what has been done to you, said about you, or sold to you.
