I resented my mother because she used to take out her frustrations out on me, one minute nice then spewing forth such rage and violence. I hated her, I was trapped with her. But what is worse than all this is that I have become her. I find myself yelling at my children in the same way. How is this monstrosity possible? My mum was distant, emotionalless so cold.

Why can't things go right for me sometimes, why do stupid little things make me explode. My dreams and hopes lay in tatters and yet I still find that I keep striving to build myself a little kingdom with submissive subjects. Pathetic isn't it. Its all about me me me.
