We all reserve the right to change our lives. That's the underpinning of everything from self-help hustling to religious conversion to psychoanalysis to many of the greatest novels. The New Me may be the biggest schlock business in the world or the deepest philosophy. Some of it's bogus, some of it's gold, who knows which is which, and to each his own. But nobody denies our right to a new leaf, a radical reinvention of ourselves or the correction of deep personal problems.
