Power, Power, Power-Not So Good

Written by Dr. Jacqueline B. Sallade, Community blogger | Oct 2, 2013 7:32 PM

We've all seen it all too often. Someone would rather win than be married. Someone would rather win than be a good parent. Someone would rather win than run a good government. Someone would rather win than be good.....

So, a divorced father could be disappointed that his son's symptoms may be based on digestive disorder caused by his general effort to please and control his elimination and his diet rather than sex abuse in the other home. So, a frightened wife with an addicted husband would rather humiliate him rather than help him change. A frustrated legislator would rather score points with a segment of his political party than do what's right for his country to function and correct the debated bill later. You get it.

It's all about power. So often, no one wants to let it go and work out a compromise. When will people listen and understand each other?
