Reactive Attachment Disorder: Writings: Knots



They are not having fun.
I can?t have fun if they don?t.
If I get them to have fun, then I can have fun with them.
Getting them to have fun, is not fun. It is hard work.
I might get fun out of finding out why they?re not.
I?m not supposed to get fun out of finding out of working out why
they?re not.
But there is even some fun in pretending to them I?m not
having fun finding out why they?re not.

A little girl comes along and says: lets have fun.
But having fun is a waste of time, because it doesn?t
help to figure out why they?re not having fun.

How dare you have fun when Christ died on the Cross
for you! Was He having fun?


There must be something the matter with him
because he would not be acting as he does
unless there was
therefore he is acting as he is
because there is something the matter with him

    He does not think there is anything the matter with him
    because
    one of the things that is
    the matter with him
    is that he does not think that there is anything
    the matter with him
    therefore
    we have to help him realize that,
    the fact that he does not think there is anything
    the matter with him
    is one of the things that is
    the matter with him

there is something the matter with him
because he thinks
there must be something the matter with us
for trying to help him see
that there must be something the matter with him
to think that there is something the matter with us
for trying to help him see that
we are trying to help him
to see that
we are not persecuting him
by helping him
to see we are not persecuting him
by helping him
to see that
he is refusing to see
that there is something the matter with him
for not seeing there is something the matter with him
for not being grateful to us
for at least trying to help him
to see that there is something the matter with him
for not seeing that there must be something the matter with him
for not seeing that there is something the matter with him
for not seeing that there is something the matter with him

for not being grateful
that we never tried to make him feel grateful

-- From Knots, by R.D. Laing, published in 1970.
