Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think you tend to hear from people who change their structural narrative because it results in such a fundamental change to the self and so it is perceived by them as an event worthy of being communicated to others.

Think of all the born-again Christians who can't stop trying to save others by convincing them to accept Jesus Christ as their personal saviour.

Some, but I know quite a few who have no desire to try to convince others to of their new structural narrativ.

And not everyone who changes their narrative become a born again Christian. :-)

That's not what I said, I said that everyone who is a born-again Christian has changed their narrative.

Here's a conceptual metaphor for you: "falling off the horse on the way to Damascus".
