Winning isn't everything but losing is nothing

I started to agree with Edmar Mednis on that...I have been told so many times that a loss is actually good, that you learn most of it, that you cannot become stronger if you don't taste the pain of defeat - of course I cannot question that. And yet, if winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?! Besides, don't know if you feel the same way as I do, but I guess it's quite a common emotion: a won game doesn't fully compensate for a loss. I suppose this comes from our burning desire to always win and when that happens, we think: "yes of course, it's normal. I've been working hard for it so I deserve it". This attitude leads to a perfidious result, that we actually don't trully enjoy our glorious moments. On the contrary, when a big zero appears on the tournament table, negative emotions start to bitch up the whole thing.



So I am thinking now: nobody can take away your pain. Why would you let someone or something take away your happiness?! From now on I will prolong as much as I can the happy successful moments! Such as the recent one from the 2012 Olympiad, from Istanbul.
OK, I know we didn't play at our best, I know we gave such horror times to our poor coach (who finished all our Nurofen pills for headaches:), I know we had luck on our side...but after all, who cares? The 5th place for our women team, the 8th place in the men section and an honorable 6th place on nations are wonderful achievements. Not to mention the qualification for the 2013 World Women Team Championship, which will be held in Antalya.
In other words, I am going to be happy about that, at least until the next tournament, which starts on Friday...
