Saddled with Guilt
Judy joins the show via telephone. After confirming that she's not cut out for country living, Dr. Phil asks, "What are you thinking you want to do?"
"Well, I'm thinking I want to sell, but then real estate values are down, and I've been through a major upheaval in my life," she replies. "I don't know if I'm even thinking clearly."
"I don't, in any way, mean to be insensitive concerning your loss, but I do want to be selfish concerning you. First off, I can't advise you financially whether it's time to sell this or not, but I can tell you this, that life is for the living," Dr. Phil says. "If that was a dream that you could share with him, because he did certain things and you did other things, and he's no longer here to do that, then your dream has changed. Your question was, 'What do I do? Do I sell this?  He's buried here. Do I dig him up and sell it?'"
[AD]"Right," she answers.
"I'm going to tell you, you dig him up and sell it," Dr. Phil suggests.
"And that's not crazy?" Judy asks. "Because I can't leave him here."
"To me, it's about the spirit. This isn't your dream, and I promise you he would want you to be happy," Dr. Phil says.
Judy expresses her gratitude.
