    “Everyone is always getting better grades than me in class. I never do anything better than others.”“She is so much better than me in everything. I don’t think she considers me to be her friend. She is just being nice to me.”“I think people talk behind my back. I think they don’t like me. I don’t have any friends in school.”The above statements are all from real life, expressed by my teen clients during coaching sessions. There is a common thread that binds them all.
