Nail on the Head

On the day of my 28th birthday, my mother said to me (this is starting to sound like a country song),
<blockquote>You have always been a rebel. You always feel a need to go in and shake things up. It makes you feel alive.</blockquote>
After more than half a century of fighting it, Mum finally got it. When she put it as succinctly as she did, it came across as a revelation to me. It's something I've always known, but never heard it said out loud.
