    when you're a child of neglect any attention beats none, including negative. I have a thing for rage-filled types. Must be a balance to my inner cool river. Don't get me wrong, it could suck if I had to deal with wrath myself. Ideally it's not turned toward me, but we all know...

    A Few

    Trust issues, anger issues, and a little bit of paranoia to make matters worse. Still, things could be worse than that. I could have jealousy issues, but that one isn't as big a problem with me as the others.

    When I'm at school people want nothing to do with me. I can't seem to interest people with my conversations or make many new friends. It's always been like this. I just wish I had people to talk to on a regular bases.

    Every person has issues. I believe mine mainly has to do with trust. I find it hard to trust people at times, and it takes me quite a while to show them my real self. The root of this fear comes a long way, probably from my childhood. Coping with this can be hard at times...
