Hi,

There are moments when they feel swallowed up by fear. They feel and live in the pain. But they work through it and their ardent yearning is still there, and they return to an altered wholeness.

(This comes from news-journal.com Brooks: Making modern toughness on Aug. 31, 2016. David Brooks writes for The New York Times.)

Does the blue part mean "a changed self"?

Thanks in advance!
