Teen Stories to Build Resilience – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Ziva Saada   When Joyce came back from soccer, she had a frown on her face. She said she was a loser. She told her mom, “I’m never going to play soccer again. Sign me out. I’m a failure.” Her mom told her that she was a smart girl and could do it. But Joyce said, “I missed the winning shot and everybody hates me.” The next day when she went to soccer, she didn’t have as much of confidence. Until she got the goal in and realized what she was doing. She realized that if you don’t do well on your first try, it’s ok, keep trying. You could do it.
