Everyday Invalidations Defenseless


I am reading The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker for the 2nd time.  My 1st reading was years ago when I had a lot more foolish energy and lack of focus.

When a change intervention leaves one defenseless what then?  Defenseless I mean the garden variety levels of neurotic behaviors, and psychological defenses aimed to reducing the anxiety of being alive.  When the excuses are gone, when the addictions have vanished or at least arrested for a time being, when a degree of emotional sobriety has taken hold then what?

How are we to live our normal secure repressed lives?  Humbly and Vulnerably?
