Finally, a teenager who wants the car.
S: I'm a teenager and you're a mother.
S: Hey Mom! Can I use your car to go to the movies?
K: No, actually, no.
S: All the other kids' parents let them use the car.
K: Oh, my goodness, it's true, isn't it? You know, we really have different lives.
S: If you loved me, you'd let me use the car.
K: You know, it's so interesting you would say that. You know, I love you with all my heart, and I'm not letting you use the car.
S: Mom, I hate you! I hate you! Everything in my life that's wrong is wrong because of you.
K: Oh, honey. I'm so sorry you feel that way. I adore you.

Last week was a bit hectic. When I discussed it with my friend, Karen, she sent me this, which I think is very cool. Using it really helped me be more relaxed!
Breathing in I know I am breathing in
Breathing out I know I am breathing out
Breathing in I see myself as a flower
Breathing out I feel fresh
Breathing in I see myself as still water
Breathing out I reflect things as they are
Breathing in I see myself as a mountain
Breathing out I feel solid
Breathing in I see myself as space
Breathing out I feel free
