Download Selber schuld! - Ein Wegweiser aus seelischen Sackgassen by Raphael M. Bonelli PDF

By Raphael M. Bonelli

Heute verdrängen wir nicht mehr Sexualität, sondern Schuld: Klopft das Schuldgefühl an der Türe des Bewusstseins, geben wir schnell die heiße Kartoffel an andere weiter. Eltern, Lehrer, Ehepartner – alle sollen schuld sein, nur damit wir uns nicht schuldig fühlen müssen. Beim Wiener Psychiater Raphael M. Bonelli legt sich die Unschuld auf die sofa. An vielen Fällen aus seiner Praxis zeigt er: Fremdbeschuldigung und Selbstmitleid machen unfrei, sour und oft auch wirklich krank. Der korpulenten Patientin ist klar: »An meinem Gewicht ist meine Familie schuld!« Der Ehemann schiebt den Seitensprung, bei dem er ertappt wurde, seiner bigotten Umgebung in die Schuhe, denn: »Ein gesunder Mann braucht das!« Und der überführte Dopingsünder sieht sich als Opfer der Medien. Bonellis Therapievorschlag lautet: Persönliche Schuld erkennen und selbst Verantwortung für das eigene Tun übernehmen. Wer zu einem schmunzelnden „Selber schuld!“ bereit ist, kann auch leichter anderen verzeihen.
