Family, Marriage, and Parenthood

By Howard Becker; Reuben Hill | Go to book overview
function of previous crisis experience as it is a forecast of later character. Grappling with a family crisis, one feels as if one had changed completely, especially if there has been dissociation and repression -- but not so. Even if one's behavior proves to be a mirror image of that prior to the shock, the ambivalent opposite trend was probably latent. To be free of one's past one must be able to be free with it, not against it. That is even more true for the divorced or deserted person, whose unpleasant past is apt to be unpredictably or even obstreperously thrown up to him by himself and others, than for the bereaved or the impoverished."The Lord saved Job when he began to pray for his friends." If upon advice, insight, or spontaneous response, a person afflicted by a life crisis feels under sincere compulsion to help others, his distraction from egoistic anxieties, his shift of focus to a larger unity in which he participates, will free him from the burden he bears -- even though that burden be an Old Man of the Sea with seven devils.
