Losing gracefully

Sometimes in life you don’t win.
You lose.
It is inevitable.

So then the question becomes:
Are you going to lose shamefully,
or are you going to lose gracefully?

It is difficult to lose gracefully.
It means you don’t pick another battle to replace your loss.
It means you don’t scream and slam the bystanders.
It means you don’t blame the rules and the rulekeepers.

Losing gracefully means that you truly accept your loss.
That you accept all your feelings about this loss.

Losing gracefully means that you shut your mouth,
and deal with your loss outside of the public eye,
with your friends and those that know your heart.

It is difficult to lose gracefully.
But you can learn this art, every loss again.
