    The Story Of My Life.

    Being as shy as I am, I've really never had any friends.  As I try to make friends, I somehow end  up pushing them away. This is my first year of high school, and I haven't made any friends I get shy around my mom, and when I'm with my dad as well. Both my parents dislike me...
