Teen Stories to Build Resilience – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Esther Haddad   When I see people out for lunch they usually all eat the same kind of food. One day I saw a girl who was on a diet, and she couldn’t eat the food that her friends were eating. So she brought her own home lunch. Her friends didn’t let her sit with them. Noone knows why they were so mean to her. The girl went home and cried that night. Her mom told her to eat what her friends eat but in small portions. The girl ended up not losing the weight that she wanted to lose but did go for lunch with her friends. Every day she regretted that decision and wanted to diet again. We learn from this to try to make better decision in hard situations.
