It is the creative perception, which gives individuals the feeling that life is worth living.
The adjustments we have to provide for our culture, can give the subject the feeling of
Uselessness, futility, and the impression of a cause not worth living life.
Creative living is a sign of health, Übergefügigkeit on the other hand, is a pathological basis for life.
The psychotherapeutic process is dealing with this conflict potential and helps individuals to
find the roots of his creativity again.
