          How A Young Man Who Says He Has Been Disappointed By His Mother His Entire Life Can Move On


          August 28, 2018

          Cole claims that throughout his life, his mother has lied to him and disappointed him. He says that while he was being raised by his dad and aunt, his mother promised to visit but rarely did, always making an excuse as to why she couldn’t be with him.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Betrayed by a loved one?

          Dr. Phil offers the young man advice on how he can move on with his life.

          “There comes a point where you have to say, ‘I’m going to stop sitting here waiting for her to change and give me what I want, give me what I need,’” Dr. Phil says. “You need to move on. You have to prepare yourself with an open heart — not a black heart, not a closed heart, not a bitter heart, not a heart filled with hatred — you prepare yourself with an open heart, and if she ever comes to you, then your heart is open.”
