I assume you heard him out, so in my personal opinion, any debt you might owe for your existence is now paid in full. It may be fashionable to hold that terrible actions are indeed terrible, but that hte person inflicting them isn't responbile due to alcohol, drugs, DNA, or GD PMS.

And if you don't know that, then maybe it's you who needs to have therapy to gain a better knowledge of yourself."

The rest of us are only good actors.Forget love. Try good manners."
Author: Rebecca Wells

And all cause you exercised free will and turned the opposite way on a whim."

Author: T. Colin Campbell
49. "The person of the therapist is the converting catalyst, not his order or credo, not his spatial location in the room, not his exquisitely chosen words or denominational silences. So long as the rules of a therapeutic system do not hinder limbic transmission - a critical caveat - they remain inconsequential, neocortical distractions. The dispensable trappings of dogma may determine what a therapist thinks he is doing, what he talks about when he talks about therapy, but the agent of change is who he is. (187)"
Author: Thomas Lewis
