    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...

    Umm...

    I try to be a social butterfly, accepting of people and never forgetting to just be myself, but sometimes I feel like when I'm in a group of people I don't know but should get to know, I'm on stage and they're this very critical audience watching my every move and if I take one...
