If someone was really, really, really doing something to make my life Hell I could tell a human to get off my back and leave me the f#@% alone, but I can't make myself say that to a deity and put any force behind it.

I hope you will take the time to do some serious self-reflection on this. It really is a very immature attitude, I have to say. You are the boss of you, even if you are dedicated to a particular deity or whatever.

I know it's a problem, it's a phobia of mine to have anyone angry with me, mostly because of experiences I've had with my family when I was younger. I am trying to deal with it, but you know eighteen years of learned behavior is hard to erase, even with help. And believe me I've been told that I'm the boss before, by my god in fact, but the idea that I might do something wrong terrifies the living hell out of me.

I have in the past -- and it worked. There was what I can only describe as a series of temper tantrums, but it worked since I would not budge.

I've done it too. LOL I actually told off Zeus, and I definitely "laid down the line" with Brighid...and that worked, I am still friendly (but not directly working for) Zeus, and I am now working with/for Brighid...on MY terms. (In Brighid's case, I was in a place where I simply could not handle any more commitment...and I said so in no uncertain terms.)

{{{{{Aionia}}}}} Fortunately for you, if you are working on it now, and it seems like you are *really working on it, from what I've read of your posts the past several months, I think you will get this together eventually. I would strongly recommend finding a therapist who really understands where you are coming from-someone you can talk about your spirituality  with honestly is really important, ime.
