Negative thoughts about mother

Hi Brooke,

I am wanting to have a better relationship with my mother but really struggling because I have thoughts about her like, “she is so negative,” “I am so tired of hearing her take a victim stance,” or “ I can’t stand to be with her.” I can easily see that I am being negative and taking a victim stance when I have these thoughts about her, but seeing that hasn’t been enough to shift my thinking and I’m struggling to identify believable thoughts that will eventually lead me to my goal result of enjoying my time with her.

Thanks in advance for your insight!
