Fear

Sports related

The topic I will be discussing and writing about is fear. I gave it some thought and I’m not really scared of a lot of things at first or some things don’t come into mind. But what did come into mind was losing and how people react to it a lot of people don’t like to lose and when people lose they either get sad, or mad, or they don’t let a loss affect them or all of the above. For me, I realized that I am scared of losing in general whether it’s a competition a loved one, and so on. I don’t like to lose and it’s a fear of not doing good enough you can say or to put it into other words. A loss for me personally would make me feel all sorts of things the two main ones are sadness and anger.

If I lost a loved one I don’t know how I would handle it since it has never happened to me and I just don’t know how I would deal with it and I don’t think nobody could be prepared for a situation like that. As for losing a competition if I lost a competition, I would feel the same but a little bit more on the angry side I would feel disappointed in myself and think to myself I have a problem. If I lose a lot of competitions whether it is in sports games, or such, some people can see a loss as a learning lesson to get better and I would like to think that.

Yet for me, if it happens too frequently I get upset and just have all kinds of thoughts so I usually tend to work hard on the things that I am passionate about so that I am prepared and win especially because I’m involved in a competitive sport. Fear has struck me because when I was younger I was good at some things but not so well at others, I know that we won’t be good at everything. We all do because no one is perfect. I don’t like the idea of people viewing me as if I’m bad at certain things. At least decent is okay with me but I want to strive and be my best at the things that I do care about such as winning.
