I’m still in the process of improving my self esteem but now I know that if I am feeling down, I can always call someone from my Alateen group and talk about it. If I make a mistake and it’s not a big deal. I usually don’t even think about it. I laugh it off and try to fix it. If it’s a big deal, I get upset with myself but eventually get over it. If friends make mistakes, I try to cheer them up. I let them know that nobody is upset and it’s not a big deal.
