    "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.

    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...

    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.

    Saying I am sorry fell on deaf ears not ready

    to hear it. Going on 4years since I left is long enough for me to grieve, recoup myself... My frailties, my strengths and take a big breath and move on. It is one step then the next then the next. I trust people again. That took a while but I did it by choices that are made each...

    Too much. But the thing is I'm tired. I'm really tired. I'm tired and I know I have the complete victim mentality. But in the end, I blame nobody except myself.
