How Do You Battle Your Feelings?

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?"

    • Are you kidding? I don't have time for emotions.
