Sample text

Understanding symptoms as something that are my parents’ or the society’s fault allow me to think that I am not responsible for my problems (‘I am anxiety-ridden, because my father battered me’), nor for my failures (‘I could not attend university because my father . ’), and not even for my criminal acts (‘I steal because I have always been poor and society has to give me now what should be mine’). The patient, instead of being responsible for what happens, ultimately is seen as a victim of circumstances.

If she enters into overt arguments with her husband it might be difficult for her to obtain what she wants. She may even be compelled to recognise her own faults. Or her husband may insist on travelling and maybe also on having affairs. Being confronted with his infidelity, he may argue that it is preferable to get divorced, etc. But with her symptoms she can simply make him stay at her side. She has power over him. And this is the function of the neurotic symptom: to avoid feelings of inferiority, to achieve superiority and to maintain a false sense of security.

And this is hard to endure. As we will show later, not only ‘organ inferiorities’ and social conditions, but also the parents’ erroneous educational style can make a child feel insecure and inferior. A pampered child can develop inferiority feelings, although initially, she may become accustomed to the idea of having power over her parents who are always prepared to remove all obstacles from her way. But she never learns to struggle by herself or to delay her wants and needs. It is not love and care she receives, but only the advantages of a parasitic existence.
