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 thinksimages

there must be something the matter with us

for trying to help him to see

that there must be something the matter with him

to think that tere is omething the matter with us

for trying to help him to see that

we are helping 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 seing 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 must be 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
