#32: Teenager has angst, expresses it through writing, yuck.

I was wondering if you wanted to talk about how you’re feeling now. You can speak practically or abstractly.
It’s fine, thanks.
Do you have any more words?
I don’t think so.
Take your time.

[We sit in silence.]

I was wondering if you could tell me about something that is concerning you.
Do you have anything you want to talk about?
I don’t know. It’s like –

[A sigh.]

That’s ok.
I don’t know what to say.
That’s ok.
I’m sorry.
Please don’t feel the need to apologise.
Right. Sorry.

[She smiles.]

Whenever you want
I think that’s maybe enough for the day
Yes. See you tomorrow
Is that it?
Yes. You can relax. You must learn to relax here. I think that would help you.
Of course.
Goodbye now.

[She ignores me.]

[GILLIAN leaves.]

Why are you still here?
I think it’s been too short.
We’ve done as much as we can today.
I need to talk about this
Please. Go ahead.

[I think we have made a breakthrough]
