Therapy for Catholics who chased false gods

FR RONALD Rolheiser (Catholic Herald, 12 February) writes: "In our Western world today there are thousands of women and men, often in their 40s or 50s, who are lying on psychiatric couches and telling their therapists: "I've never had a chance to live my own life! It seems like I've always had to live for others."

Bearing in mind that statistics reflect the bias of the author, where does Fr Rolheiser get his facts from? I had always the impression that it is the ambitious who, in their 40s and 50s, discover that they have been after false gods. It may be. of course, that they alone are able to afford the comfort of such couches and that the sacrificial lambs, exploited, deluded or merely timid, would dearly long to join them, I doubt it, though.
