Something Else Takes Over

In Something Else Takes Over, TALIYA talks to her Auntie about how she can’t seem to get a handle on her uncontrollable temper and hurts those she loves in the process.

Taliya:  I don’t want to act the way I act sometimes.  When I get angry it’s like something else takes over and I don’t feel like me and I don’t want to be like that.  It’s so ugly and I hate myself afterwards.

My mother…I say things to her that I shouldn’t say and I know I shouldn’t say them.  I blame her for whenever I’m not happy or something goes wrong.  I take it out on her and that’s when I let out all my anger and it’s not fair on her…she does everything for me, everything.

She’s my best friend and I treat her so badly when I’m upset.  I don’t know how to turn it off.  I want to stop it but I can’t and I hurt her emotionally…I see her face and I am so guilty…so…I think I need help, like, I should talk to someone professional because if I continue to cause my mother pain, I don’t know what I’ll do.
