That's none of your business. Gosh, you're so nosy. Sometimes I wonder why you're even my friend.
Hey Nina! How'd you go in the assessment?! I'm sure you did super good.
Nina got her grade back for an assessment that she worked really hard for. She was upset and annoyed. Her friend Brianna, yelled across the room that she got E8, and this caused Nina's emotions to become more angry than upset.
Scene Four: Self-Awareness
I wish I never said those things to Brianna, I feel horrible.
I can't believe this! I worked so hard on this assessment I can't believe I got an A3! I'm such a failure.
Nina feels very disappointed in herself but also very angry and frustrated. She feels this way because she thought she was going to do really well in the assessment, but then she was let down by her grade. Her friend, Brianna made her very irritated because she got an E8, and yelled it across the classroom. This made her feel jealous of her happiness and felt like she was showing off, so she became angry with her.
Scene Five: Regulation
I may have not got the grade I wanted or expected, but that does not make me a failure. I am going to ask my teacher what I did wrong tomorrow, and how I can improve. I will also apologise to Brianna.
Nina behaves rudely to her friend, who was just asking a question. She takes her anger out on her friend and makes her feel upset. Brianna doesn't understand what she did wrong and is really confused by Nina's words.
Scene Six: Repair Relationships
I am very sorry for telling you that you shouldn't be my friend, I was just really disappointed in my grade, and when you asked me that, I didn't want to tell you, so I over reacted, and I am very sorry.
Nina realised that her actions were unhealthy and that she was over-generalising her thoughts before. She realises that she overreacted about her grade and then took all her anger out on her friend Brianna.
Nina does mindful colouring to regulate her emotions and to collect her thoughts. She realises she was over-generalising before and starts to think differently about herself. She understands that her grade doesn't matter as long as she was proud of what she did. She wants to know how to improve and get a better grade. She starts to tell herself "I am not a failure"and starts to feel better about herself.
Brianna apologises to Brianna about what she said to her. She explains why she said that and what triggered her into doing it. Brianna apologises back for asking her about her grade. They make up and are back to best friends again.
It's okay, I'm sorry for asking you about your grade, I shouldn't have asked you, I know not everyone likes to share. Sorry.
