Matt Sorum is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Sorum to achieve his goals and desires.

Matt Sorum struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle.
