Quote by Murray Bowen…
“Gaining more knowledge of one’s distant families of origin can help one become aware that there are no angels and devils in a family: they were human beings, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, each reacting predictably to the emotional issue of the moment, and each doing the best they could with their own life course”.
What a load of fucking bullshit.
Clearly Murray Bowen wasn’t raised by highly abusive people. Clearly he knows nothing about narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths. Or chooses to ignore it. And choses to ignore how intentional their abuse is.
The bullshit attitude that every person is ‘doing the best they can’ is absolute fucking crap.
And the very fact my counsellor buys into this bullshit, is why I will not be returning.
