You don't always say the wrong things, Penny. I see you say the right things here all the time. Sometimes we all say things that other people don't like, either because they misunderstood us or because they just don't like what we've said. And it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you for it happening to you, because it happens to everyone. Unless of course you think of it as meaning there's something wrong with everyone, which is probably also quite true.

It sounds like you and your roomate are just suffering from a bit too much togetherness right now. Things will even out.

Now, all that sensible thought aside, I have the exact same reaction when someone I care about is mad at me. The same automatic thoughts. So I do understand. But I'm telling you the same things I tell myself in between the "OMG, So and so is mad at me the world is over my life will never be the same again."

Deep breaths, a warm bath, and whatever else makes you feel a bit better.
