But despite all her talent, Lily suffers from crippling self-doubt. She berates herself for not being smart enough to get better grades. She's concerned that she's not quite good enough to get an athletic scholarship and that she's just wasting her time - she's already quite swimming because of this. She's afraid that she wont be able to succeed in an artistic field.....she really wishes that she were smarter at something useful like math or science. And she worries, as most teenage girls do, about not being pretty or thin. She's become increasingly unhappy in the last few years.
To be honest, I don't quite know how to help her.
