Lecture Notes ~ July 18th
After much thought, I believe I agree with the article. Why a friend would help compound another friends worries and insecurities, I do not know. Maybe it is them just thinking through their own feelings and lack of confidence in themselves and wanting their friend to feel the same. Possibly jealously, I am not sure, but I know it happens. I see it in some adults, so it is not just true about adolesents. I personally find that I do not enjoy hanging with real negative people, I prefer to lift others up and encourage them. I like to be believed in and encouraged. Maybe with the children it is a matter of self esteme. Hopefully the majority of them outgrow the negative thoughts and start looking at life in a more positive light.
