    as a kid I was always upset about my home life

    but I didn't really know what about it was bothering me... I knew there was a lot of fighting and arguing but I didn't realize that more importantly there was no love or care or concern... I knew I was sad but I felt like there wasn't a legitimate reason to be so I would...
