Usually I just have a peculiar sense of humor, hence the Insanity statement. I don't really get hurt by criticism, though I can see where it might
seem that way. I see people being told they are no good or not as good, but I just don't see it that way.
What I see is that a person is exactly as good as they need to be. One basketball player might not make the shot as often as another, but to me this
does not mean he's not as good only that he's not supposed to make those shots as often as another. I see that one atom effects another and if the
atoms that make up said basketball are not supposed to collide with the atoms that make up the hoop than so be it.
A person that makes a smaller percentage of shots can train to make more, but only if that's what he wants, not because he thinks he's worth less if
he doesn't. If he'd like to make more shots he can work on it, but the missed shots serve their purpose just the same as the shots that make the
goal, we learn from our mistakes. I do not fear my mistakes, I cherish them.
People tend to ridicule others for their mistakes, not that they haven't made their own mistakes, but even if not, why ridicule something that is

Edit: In respect to basketball and other such things, some times people just have a bad day. I look at Tiger Woods these days and he's just not
performing as well as he did in the past. He's not no good anymore, clearly he's learned the skills so why is he not making the cup as often as he
used to? I think it's because he's trying to hard to live up to the standards others have set for him. Golf was a game, now it's a job.
