Depressed people often feel bored and don't feel like doing anything. Jarrod had depression. He decided he was going to make himself do more things so that he could start feeling better. Name three things your parents will let you do when you are very bored. Three chips.
Kelly is very interested in being friends with Carrie, a girl who lives next door. Carrie almost always says "no" when Kelly invites her over, so now Kelly is depressed and thinks she'll never have friends. What is a better way to think about this that won't make Kelly depressed? Two chips.
