Today’s Takeaway: Mental Illness: Look Past The Behaviors

Dr. Phil says mental illness can express itself in some ways that may be “annoying,” and that the sick person can become ungrateful and difficult to be around, but loved ones shouldn’t give up.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Dr. Phil, please solve our conflict!

“Our job as family members is to love these people when they’re not loveable,” Dr. Phil says. “You have to look past the behavior and look at the motivation, and realize that when you see people expressing anger, they’re really just showing you hurt, fear or frustration. They’re doing what they have to do to get along.”

On Monday’s episode, Dr. Phil speaks with Ryann and her mother, Jode, who claim their loved one, Stephanie, is paranoid and delusional and that her behavior is dangerous to her and her children.

“Ask yourself, if you’ve got somebody in your life, you or somebody else who’s not being productive, not being independent, what are the obstacles?” Dr. Phil suggests. “Make a to-do list and an action plan for overcoming those things.”

Woman Claims Her Daughter Is In An Abusive Relationship

The Meaningful Possession Harvey Levin Says He Has Carried In The Trunk Of His Car For 17 Years

Harvey Levin, known for his celebrity website TMZ and as host of TMZ Live, also hosts the series OBJECTified, where he speaks with newsmakers and celebrities about some of their most meaningful possessions to uncover stories not already known to the public.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a story Dr. Phil won’t believe?

Dr. Phil, who appears on an upcoming episode, flips the tables on Levin and asks him to discuss one of his most meaningful possessions.

“These are my father’s shoes, and I keep these shoes in the trunk of my car,” says Levin, adding that he has kept the black, worn loafers in his trunk since his father died 17 years ago. “I’ve never taken them out of the car until today. And, they mean a lot to me.”

Levin continues, telling Dr. Phil about his father.

“If you notice in the shoes, they’re different. This shoe is a different shape, and it’s bigger, and it’s because he had an operation when he was a kid and one leg was longer than the other. So, he had a rough time, and he had a tough life,” Levin says. “My dad was the hardest working person I’ve ever been around in my life, and he worked 16-hour days, 7 days a week. And, like you and your dad, my dad really gave me my work ethic. And, it’s one of the most valuable tools I have in my life.”
