Bingo!

Bentley seems to have had a horrible life growing up, yet he managed to break the cycle on his own. Trouble is, he'll never see it that way.

If people would realise that the power to change their lives for the better came from within themselves and not from an imaginary higher power, it would do no end of good for their self-esteem. It saddens me that religious beliefs not only stop people taking responsibility for their own thoughts and prejudices, but it also robs them of any genuine feeling of self-achievement.
Double bingo! You said it perfectly!
