Embrace Losing – It Will Make You Stronger

 I HATE LOSING. I hate it.  I really, really, really hate it.  It chaps my hide.  It rips at my core. I don’t get over it easily.  I lose sleep.  I fucking hate losing.  It’s not so much the actual outcome that I hate – it’s the process.  The fact that I lost when I should have won. I think about it for months, often years.  But I embrace losing.  It is how I learn.  I relive the moment so many times over in my mind wondering if I could have done this differently or if I shouldn’t have said or done this or that.  I talk to trusted sources about it.  I ask for feedback.  I hate losing.  I don’t want to lose next time.
