I began to fall in love with the sport, but not just baseball, the feeling of physically and mentally improving myself
I was still very very young and didn't want to stop at just one sport. I realized that I had a lot of physical potential so I began to branch off into other sports like basketball!
I began to love sports so much that I ended up spending all the time I could in the gym with my brother. I kept becoming better and better and still didn't think about stopping. At this point I completely forgot about the purpose of me starting to play sports because of my bullies
that's a 15 pound improvement!
My stubbornness to prove people wrong and be the best at everything sticks with me today and I don't plan to fix it. This is because it pushes me to do well in everything, especially school!
Today I spend most if not all of my free time working out or practicing a sport. It has become what I love and what I plan to do for the rest of my life next to pursue my academic goals.
I wonder where I'd be if I never got bullied on that cul-de-sac?
