A Look At The Flip Side
In the movie "Ordinary People," a boy was talking to a therapist. The boy's older brother died in a boating accident. The boy carries a tremendous amount of guilt over his brother's death, feeling somehow that it was his fault for surviving. The therapist offers a "flip side" when he says that the reason he survived and his brother died maybe that he was stronger than he was. In other words, the responsibility for the death rests with the one who died. The therapist offers an opposite view, idea, or insight which the boy has overlooked.
