I hate that too. It's one of those things that makes me feel even more the exact opposite.

Are things getting any easier with time?

I'm still afraid of my mother. She's good at getting angry, and I've never dealt well with anger.

I'll never forget when I went to some sort of community service program about dealing with anger. Silly me thought it was for dealing with other people's anger, while in reality it was about people dealing with their own rage. And I was the one they were worried about!! I still can't figure that out. I grew up with two parents who could sometimes be angry and volatile. Anger that appears uncontrolled scares me.

I say "appears". My mother once proudly told me how she'd used anger to control a situation with someone else. She apparently didn't realize that I figured that if she did it with others, she would do it with me.
