Misplaced Frustration: Scapegoat 2

with | June 20, 2019

Every time Cassandra's mom failed to follow through on a commitment, she took it out on her stepmom or stepsiblings. Because her relationship with her mom was fragile she'd do anything but tell her how she felt. How do things get better?

If she doesn't, hopefully she will let her stepmom help her cry.
