I’ve been playing a lot more basketball recently, more than I’ve ever played since I was 14
And I’ve realized that I often get frustrated in basketball when things don’t go my way, especially if I know that I am capable of doing certain things.
I think it’s because when I play basketball I have this mindset of perfection. If I don’t play well, I get mad at myself.
And even though I know that I’ll never be a professional basketball player, I think the mindset of competition I gained from the sport is something I can transition to many aspects of my life.
