    "Fvck My Life, Nobody Listens To Me"

    There's so much more to do than to always look at ourselves as victims and the rest of humanity, villains. The world doesn't owe us a good life, we owe the world compassion and care. We all have our issues, let's deal with them like grown ups.

    I hate in others and in myself,

    especially myself. I hate that I'm jealous of the kid who filled my spot in my absence in the team. Hate the look that the coach gave him that I worked so hard to get before and that they need me even less now. That he won his first match when I lost three in a row on my first...

    Self Pity

    Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.

    Be strong people of the world.

    For you are made conquerers. From the ashes of defeat burn the flame of victory. I believe in your ability to believe in yourself. I will not tolerate naysayers. Be strong.

    Don't start our conversation by saying stuff

    like "I know I'm ugly but," or "I'm not the smartest,". Just stop. The first step to being confident is acting confident, and thinking positively.

    Same thing for the women who know they are being used, and letting them get away with it. Well, I pity these people more, than hate. It's the idea that I find so hateful.
