Sometimes(*), telling me to look at & focus on the positive aspects of my mother is like telling the survivor of a knife-attack to look at & focus on the beauty & craftsmanship of the knife that was repeatedly plunged into his body; suggesting that I should be thankful for even having her in my life, back then & now, is akin to suggesting that that knife-attack survivor be thankful for the nice, intricate pattern his wounds & scars form.
