Anybody else terrified that they are becoming their mother?
Once in a while I feel bad about how I handled a situation with my sons and I realize that it's how my mom did it. I might raise my voice in that particular guilt-imposing you-can't-do-anything-right way over something minor or just get mad and "never mind I'll do it myself" over a chore done sloppily.
Now that she's living with us, she has the occasional outburst and my stomach churns into knots like it did when I was a kid. She has a particular screech that just makes all the hair on my body stand up.
I am truly terrified that I might turn into her. How do I know that I'm not?
