          Dr. Phil: ‘A Day Of Doing The Right Thing Is More Powerful Than A Year Of Doing The Wrong Thing’


          January 4, 2018

          Tammi suffered serious injuries when her ex-fiancé, Chris, assaulted her with a meat tenderizing hammer two years ago, and now she says she fears leaving the house.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: I'm living a nightmare!

          “What’s keeping you on that couch?” Dr. Phil asks her on Thursday’s episode.

          “I just feel like it’s selfish for me to talk about something that happened two years ago,” she responds. “I just feel like ‘You’re alive, get over it.' Like the – you know, ‘Time heals.’ How much time?”

          "Here’s a news flash. Willpower is a myth,” says Dr. Phil, adding, “You can’t do this by willpower.”

          He continues, “The second myth is: ‘Time heals all wounds.’ Time heals nothing. Because I’m telling you, a day of doing the right thing is more powerful than a year of doing the wrong thing. It’s not just the passage of time it’s what you do with that time.”

          How does she respond when he tells her, “Reinforcements have arrived”?
