“It is precisely because the unconscious in its wisdom knows that ‘the way things used to be’ is no longer tenable or constructive that the process of growing and giving up is begun on an unconscious level and depression is experienced.....the pain of giving up is the pain of death, but the death of the old is the birth of the new. ….for us to develop a new and better idea, concept, theory or understanding, means that an old idea, concept or understanding must die” M. Scott Peck
