Person I live with yells, curses and slams things when angry, and she’s frequently angry. I don’t know if she’s trying to get me to react to her anger, whether it’s my fault or not, but to me she seems to make especially sure I know she’s angry. Maybe it’s just because she knows it messes with me, or maybe she blames me for something.
I feel dread when I hear her footsteps upstairs. I know it’s a bad living situation, and wish I didn’t have to occupy her space (her house). She has valid reasons to be angry at me being here.
I just want to know how to deal with the anxiety of feeling like I’m guilty of something every time she’s around. I already compensate with chores and chipping in with groceries.
