I must be so bad at hockey. I never would have made this team. I wish I didn't trial.
I guess I'm away for the tournament anyway, so it doesn't matter
I think that to try and monitor my emotions for the future so that I don't act the same way I did, I should try and accept that I am feeling a certain way and then use the RULER skills to help balance me out. I need to recognise my emotions and understand why I am feeling a certain way. Then after labelling my emotions I should think about how I'm expressing my emotions and how I can regulate them.
I feel so sad and upset. I must have played so badly in the trial. I am embarrassed and annoyed at myself. I am so ashamed, I am sitting in the blue - red quadrant on the mood meter.
I wonder what my friends will think. I bet they all got into the team. What will I say? I don't want to know.
Nice job on making the team. I don't really mind not getting in as I will be away for the tournament anyway.
Thank you Anna! It would have been nice having you in my team!
I hope Anna is alright.
I think my feelings from receiving the news made it hard to respond to my team mates and talk to them about it. I was feeling quite slouchy and sad from the results and I wasn't getting on with other things. I think my behaviour effected the way I acted around my friends as I didn't want to feel sad so I acted like I was fine.
I need to find a new way to face the problem and try and change my mood to pleasantness.
Sure, It's definitely a shame not making the team and I can accept that It's normal to feel this way. But I think I should focus on the positives that I can get out of this such as how it gives me lots of space to improve and work on my hockey. Now I am more motivated and will focus on how to get better rather than dwelling on the fact that I didn't make the team.
