A defeat is not the end of the world.
For sure, it hurts. You’ll have to take time to process it. You will be tempted to give way to regrets, complaints, frustation, fury. And sometimes, you should. You will need to regroup with those who have been close to you all along the way. You will grieve, cry perhaps, feel like everything was pointless. You will analyse, and question, and wonder. You might be doing that for quite some time.
In the end, though, you will accept and go back to your practice. And actually, the fastest you do, the strongest you are.
Because a defeat is not the end of the world.
