Angry Mom

My mother sometimes seems unhappy or frustrated with me. It's complicated for me to figure out. I think to myself she's probably stressed out from her job or something of the sort. I am not paranoid but it seems she specifically in a foul mood with me. It's strange because she does not act this way with my younger brother really at all or really anyone else for that matter. I almost want to say she is channeling her frustrations on me. I really don't like this at all. In her brain she probably feels she has reason in her mind to do this to me probably because of all the stress I have caused her in the past. But that is the key word past. Because maybe the past month I've been trying real hard not to irritate her and must say that I've been doing good at not bothering her. But she always got an attitude when she speaks to me. I've done nothing to bother her in way shape or form. But maybe because of the crap I've done in the past it justifies that it's alright to still be mad at me? I really would like some advice
