Julia began her job in a secondary school as a counselor and she was keen to help the pupils.  One day during break-time she noticed a girl standing all by herself on one side of the playing field while the rest of the children were enjoying a game of soccer at the other end of the field.  Julia approached and asked if she was all right.  The girl said that she was.  Some time later, however, Julia noticed that the girl was in exactly the same spot, still by herself.  Going up to her again, she enquired, ‘Would you like me to be your friend?’  The girl hesitated, then said, ‘Alright,’ while looking at Julia with some suspicion.  Feeling she was making progress, Julia then asked, ‘Why are you standing here all alone?’  ‘Because,’ the girl said with a large sigh, ‘I’m the goalie!’
