Alternately, many of us were disappointed in parents who did not speak up for us. In fact, both taught us in very different ways to speak for ourselves. This is called reframing. You review the past and see it through new eyes, reframe it through the lens of experience and compassion. This takes work.

My own mother died thirtynine years ago, yet her exhortations to write thank-you and condolence notes are with me to this day.
