The Last Psychiatrist: Love Means Not Letting The Other Person Be Himself

Promised the world as described by Coca Cola and whatever TV show was popular at the time.  All opportunities are open to anyone who wants to work, a new car, a big house, a career.  But no one told the men that those things were for their families, not for them, that none of this would make them happy, and, indeed, would make them realize how little their lives are really worth– unless they understood that their lives had value only if it was of value to someone else.  So for a while they chased sex, affairs, or took up an out of the house hobby (e.g.golf).  Something to give them the temporary illusion that they were free, and that the world had possibilties, not pot roast and pot bellies.

That’s where women are, encouraged like the men had been by media images that say, “of course you can! (if you have the right bag).”  You can’t.  It didn’t make men happy, and it sure won’t make you happy.
