upon taking a big fall, never think of it as the end, instead, you have to look back and see how far you've fallen and what made you trip. make it a point to never accept anything as a failure but as a priceless lesson, experience is sometimes tough and unforgiving but what softens it more than good will? good will from other willing to help you get up? shoving away the hands that want you is like clinging to the arms that suffocate you, what is essential is usually felt and never seen, do not hesitate to show your feelings, if you have to weep do it and once you're finished crying, wipe your tears and get up, as soon as your wounds have healed you have to try again, it doesn't matter how many times you fall and bruise in a race, what matters is how much distance you've covered, you do not go back from scratch knowing you've started something all you need to do is keep your passion's flare alive. you may find this oddly familiar but what can I say, I'm not very special to have an extraordinary story, otherwise I'd be lying to myself.
There was a time when I was still an upstart chess player, i didn't win my first game until a few years after learning, there was a school player who was fond of humiliating and telling me that I was wasting my time at trying to play, he wasn't helping much but i understood how there will always be people trying to drag you down, but my mentor never gave up on me or let me win against him so I'd know how to play against a pro, he never gave up on me and we still play today,each time I lost as a child I had enough in me to know i had to figure out why I was losing and how to make sure it doesn't happen again, after four years of practice I won my first local games against people who were good at beating me, The prices didn't matter to me because my hard work was pay-off enough, the same person that taunted me during my first two years of playing finally bit the dust when we met over the board and when it counted,I ultimately realized that shoving the bad away will not help, facing it and solving it does it but we should always look back and look for the holes that need patching. :)
