By Rena Chaiklin When I am not so happy and kind of sad, I think of all the good things that I have, the things that I am proud of about myself. I think of the time when I had a good laugh with my friends. I think of that what happened to me-that it could’ve been worse. For example, once I came home with my friend and my brother kept following me around. He embarrassed me a lot. He was being very annoying. So, instead of getting angry at him, I kept turning everything around and contradicting everything he said. I changed the subject and made us all laugh.
