That's another variety of a not uncommon situation - an absent father may be a great dad potentialy, but if he generally isn't there to do it, and to show how its done, it's harder for us to learn and recognize how to be comfortable in that role. Low self-esteem can start when one doesn't get affirmation and positive support from a parent, and then would indeed easily grow more troublesome when one was exposed to an abusive and uncaring relationship.
As you and others testify you USED to be much more happy and relaxed than this, there is an excellent chance of getting back to that, with the help of a psychotherapist / counsellor, to work through this material and help you deal better, bu alternative ways, with the irritability when it arises.
