This sounds like a type of childhood trauma the way you think about it and it stays with you. I cannot understand your view because I am not you so for the note I cannot understand your situation.Sure, it HAS meant that I am easily pleased and way less materialistic than the very vast majority of the population. But the scars of poverty at a young age, even at age 58, are still affecting me. There is really nothing to be thankful for in my childhood past.
There is always something to be grateful for in the hard times. It is harder in the tough times. Sit down and make a list of what you can be thankful for as a child. You may be surprised what you write. If you can't seem to think of anything then write, "God was always there."
