April 15, 2007 Be open… Be kind….Be in the moment…. ALWAYS!
Why are teenage girls so mean to each other? My dear Megan is having a terrible time
in school. There is one girl who is doing most of the tormenting. My Megan is very sensitive and just does not know how to the handle this "mean" girl. Being her Mother’s daughter she is taking her frustrations out on the
ones she loves. Poor sweet Michael who she has spent so much time with over these past six weeks rehearsing Peter Pan was Megan’s punching bag today. But I do believe I got her to understand the importance of being kind to others…. always. Being thirteen is so difficult but I wish difficult did not translate into mean. I wish I knew a magic trick that would teach these kids how to be open to others and not judge or get jealous. Why do some kids feel the need to hold all the power, to be the " head cheerleader" so to speak? Why cannot people both young and old co-exist side by side not above and below each other.
I just pray Megan recognizes her light which most of the time is filled with compassion and continues to let it shine on those around her.
