Pls tell me the secret to getting over the loss. Asking for a friend
You realize in the grand scheme of things, whether we won or whether we lost, does your life drastically change?
If there is one thing I've learned is that everything in life is temporary. The good, the bad and everything in between. Had we won, the very next minute, my life would have returned to normal. The temporary boost in feeling good about something I had no part in would be replaced with all the same challenges, aches, pains, worries and other life events I had going on prior to the game. Likewise, the temporary state of feeling bad about something I had no part in will also quickly fade as life returns to normal here on a Monday morning. Same boring meetings. Same dysfunction at work. The outcome of the game wouldn't have magically changed any of it. The problems I had Saturday morning are the exact same ones I have right now. No need to add to it, especially considering I do not have ANY personal ties to anybody on the team.
Is it disappointing? For sure. I'm bummed the team I root for didn't get it done. As far as life is concerned, it has absolutely zero impact, just like it would have had we won.
You didn't fail nor did you lose. A team you root for lost a game.
That is the secret.
