    "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...

    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.
