We tend to identify with our roles, but these roles are not absolute. (...) Identification makes everything disproportionately personal. We are identified with our bodies, our feelings, our thoughts, and our consciousness to the point where we feel this is I, this is what and who I am. And because of our identification, we can become really emotional if what we’ve identified with turns out to be of relative nature. We find it difficult to change, and we are afraid to die because we are deeply identified.
