How Do You Battle Your Feelings?

"Aaaargh!"

Expert Advice from Dr. Janet Taylor

Yea! Boo. Aaargh!

How do you feel when your best bud makes the team and you don't? Think about it. Are you happy? Are you sad? Maybe you're mad. Chances are you feel something. Welcome to emotions... we've all got 'em.

Emotions usually happen after some event, like not making the team when your friend does. It may not even be a big deal like tryouts. They can be triggered by something as simple as a thought. "What if I'm not good enough to make the team?" or "What if every one laughs at me?"

2. Get a piece of white paper and markers/crayons. Make a picture that shows how you are feeling right now. Show the picture to someone that you know and talk about it.

    Are You Really Emotional?

    • Sometimes I get a little teary-eyed or angry.
    • Not really. I'm pretty chill.
    • I constantly feel like I'm on an emotional rollercoaster.
    • Are you kidding? I don't have time for emotions.

    You two have a crush on each other.. You two also want to date.. Buuuutttt he can't because he's not allowed. Soooo. I think you guys should just be friends! Get to know each other better, you don't have to date for that. Also hangout and stuff, don't forget to let things cool down. Like when he got mad, let him cool down for a bit, then start talking. Everything will get easier from then on hopefully  :D
