Okay, mama. WHY are you not looking at willow and holly? I see the beech (and I can absolutely relate...I have three with special needs.) Willow has resentment, spite, bitterness, anger and plenty of negativity. This is one I take OFTEN. Maybe it's me projecting....but look at it.
Holly (which may also be great for your dd actually if she's looking to hurt others) has anger, distrust, intolerance of others, feels supersensitive but thinks the other is at fault, belittles others in heart (you mentioned feeling this way) Heart feels hardened (better to be alone.) For kids there is often lashing out physically.
Beech, crab apple, willow, elm, holly and chestnut bud I would say are good ones for you. I can also see oak...but I wonder about that. I'd need to hear more about your exhaustion and how you feel to distinguish between oak and olive. I also wonder about mustard and pine for you...
Look at those and see what you think. For a quick synopsis:
Mustard: depression, feels excluded from life, introverted, caught up in gloom, no inner serenity.
Pine: undervalues self, introverted, looks at limits rather than potential, guilt, feels responsible for other's issues, little joy in life.
