The infant is born with four major motivations:1) Interest in the world. 2) Repetitive learning. 3) Mastering skills. 4) Becoming attached. Understanding these can make difficult lives easier. The last one is most important. We will give up the others for it, and frustration here creates the most complications. This is true especially in forced choices that make us lose functioning parts of the self while in relationships with people we depend on. It's all about memory, once explained, the work is in recapturing the self. I do not fault someone for something they have no memory for.
