It is a terror of being alive–of not belonging, of being alone, and of being unable to survive. This terror is not a reaction to particular circumstances. It is horror of living in a world for which you feel unprepared and in which you feel powerless.
At the bottom of this entire emotional dynamic lies the orgin of all painful experiences.
That is lack of self-worth. Lack of self-worth is the fundamental source of all emotional pain. It is the root of the plant. Anger and depression are the flowers. Pain at the world not being the way you want it forms the branches. Terror at being alive is the trunk..Lack of self-worth is the root.
