Fail­ing sucks

Girlfriend - - GF FEELS -

“The last time I cried was when my footy team lost our grand fi­nal. I was so cer­tain we were go­ing to win. We had been do­ing so well for the weeks lead­ing up and I hon­estly couldn’t even think about not win­ning. It just didn’t seem like an op­tion. Dur­ing the game, things didn’t go to plan. We were de­feated, and I felt like I let my team down. I re­mem­ber af­ter the bell went off I just started cry­ing, like proper sob­bing – in front of my team­mates and the op­po­si­tion! I wasn’t alone ei­ther, a few other guys in my team were cry­ing too. Fail­ing sucked and I was feel­ing over­come with anger, frus­tra­tion and dis­ap­point­ment. But now I look back on it, I don’t care that peo­ple saw me cry. Bot­tling all that up would’ve been such a bad idea.” – Jaden, 18.
