I am a horrible person - July 8th 2018, 08:04 PM

My mom asked me to do something simple and I just blew up at her and acted like a huge piece of shit. I don't know what happened or why I acted like that. I fucking laigued at her when she was about to cry. I don't know ow what's going on. I didn't feel bad about it until she yelled at me about it. Why didn't I feel bad before she yelled at me? What is happening to me? I don't want to lose my relationship with my mom, but if I keep doing this I'm going to push her away, please help I want to know what could have caused me to act like that

Hey there,

I think most people explode at their family from time to time. There could be a lot of reasons as to why you are dealing with this. For example, I have anxiety and depression and both things lead to me being irritable and exploding from time to time. It doesn't make me a bad person and these things do not make you a bad person. Do you think that you could try and log your moods for a while? If you kept track of how your moods you might be able to pinpoint what you are feeling before and after you explode at your mom or anyone else. This might help you figure out if there is a trigger for these things.

Best regards.

Like Bibliophile said, there's loads of reasons you might have snapped, so don't beat yourself up too much. I think we've all been there where we lost our shit over something that was seemingly insignificant. It could be that pressures external to this (job, school, your friends) were building up without your realizing it and some insignificant thing your mom said set you off, even though it wouldn't have otherwise.

It sounds like this isn't the first time this has happened though. Have you ever spoken to your mom, or even written her a letter to just say that you're sorry? I am sure you won't lose your mom over this, but I am sure that apologizing would also go a long way if she's feeling hurt by it at all

Also, I know a number of people who's anxiety and depression was often expressed as anger. I'm not sure if maybe you're experiencing a lot of negative emotion that's affecting your behaviour, but if so, it might be worth it to look into therapy or even just do some research online, learn some mindfulness techniques, etc, and it might help you get some perspective on this and help you keep your emotions in check
