My mom would scream at me every single time I f*cked up when I was a kid, no matter how minor or major the situation was. I've always thought that was the root of my anxiety, so this study explains a lot. She tries to be nice to me nowadays, but I barely say 2 words to her. I still hold resentment for the way she treated me as a kid. Sometimes I feel bad for holding such a grudge, but I can't get over it. She damaged me.
