I am only here because my mom told me i had to come. She says that i need help.
How may I help you today?
Lily Smith visits her first patient of the day. She is a social worker, and right now she is helping Mrs.Thomas with her bills.
Well it seems to me that you must be sad about your father, so why don't you tell me about your relationship with him.
Lily goes back to her office and a man comes in with a sad face.
Well i think you feel guilty about saying those things to your father and never being able to make it right. So if you just except the fact that your father doesn't care what you say he will always love you no matter what you said.
The man explains that his father had died a year ago and that he, as his mother said, was a depressed mess.
Thank you Miss. Smith I will try to think that way from now on
Sean you just have to understand that sad things happen and that we'll never know the reason behind it. You had noting to do with your father's death.
The man says that his name is Sean and he was very close to his father. But one day he and his father had had a fight and that Sean doesn't even remember what it was about. But he remembers saying that he hated his father and the wished he would die. And that is exactly what happened the next week.
Sean cries for a while and then says that he feels that saying he wished that his father would die is the reason why his father had died.
Sean sits in silence for a while, and then accepts what Lily had said. He leaves bewildered by the sense of purpose that he thought he had abandoned a year ago. Well that"s just the power of a social worker.
