I look like my mother. How do I deal with this?

Many facial features I have are very similar to my mother's. She's not ugly or anything, but I don't have a good relationship with her. I am having self image problems because of this.

I was emotionally, verbally and physically abused by her as a child. I am dealing with the abuse well. It's just that when I see myself in the mirror, I absolutely hate the way I look. Has anyone else had any similar self image problems? I'm sure therapy would help, but I live in a very remote location & can't afford it. I'm really doing well besides that. I would like to have a more positive self image, instead of seeing my reflection and being reminded of someone that treated me so badly for so many years. Can anyone offer any coping advice?
