Growing up, I had 5 brothers, so after awhile being so defensive I found it hard to empathize for others. I found it especially hard controlling my reactions in the right settings. If someone were to make me upset I’d deal with it by being argumentative and aggressive with that individual. I lost a lot of friends because of my attitude in junior high and my sophomore year of high school. After having so many relationships with rough endings, I began looking for ways to change that negativity that I felt inside me. I wanted people to understand that my bad habits do not define the person I was
meant to be. I then began looking for ways to improve my personality traits and characteristics that I disliked about myself.
