How to accept defeats when playing sports?? Not all of us can do this. Some of us take the defeats to close to their heart. Do you think it is right? Or should people be more calm about defeats? I mean you can't always directly control the outcome of a specific game, but you can control what you contribute. So what is the point to be sad about defeats all the time. Yes, sometimes it can be very offencive to lose in a game or sport but it is not the end of the world. It just means that next time you have to work a little more harder. Do you agree with me?
