“I Hate My Mother”

“I hate my mother,” said Tony, a teenager, during a Skype session. 

“That’s what my psychiatrist told me. So he gave me anti-depressant.”

I then asked him, “Why are you then coming to me?”

And he answered, “The drugs are not working. And he’s not telling me what to do with my feelings of hatred towards my mother.”

I’m not surprised at all.

The sad part of secular and biochemical psychiatry. It’s major flaw is always its incompleteness. It can’t prescribe any meaningful, lasting cure.

Author Dr. Tim LaHaye was once asked by an elderly man, “Do you think it’s possible for a man who has been angry for 70 years to break the habit?”

Interesting question.

To which Dr. LaHaye responded; “God’s power is available to you and can cure any habit.”

Two years later, the man appeared again to Dr. LaHaye.

The elderly man told him, “I want to give you a progress report. God has cured my problem of anger. If you don’t believe it, ask my wife.”

And Dr. LaHaye did and could read and see the expressions of the elderly man’s wife.

In my work as a psychotherapist, I’ve yet to meet a person who experienced instant cure from any bad habits.

The cure always comes by conscious and repetitive action. By gradual exercise of mental habit patterns.
