I must be an Ike main because you’ll get no sympathy from me. 2nd place is far from being a failure and you know it.


LevelUpGavin

fail·ure /ˈfālyər/ noun lack of success.


mx_destiny

Second is podium, success is your own definition. For me, improvement is success, no matter the size. That makes my goals feel more attainable, too.


LevelUpGavin

Improvement means absolutely nothing if your improvements don't bring you success.. That's just my opinion..


Dv_Rain

Well that opinion is stupid


Pristine-Ad-469

Dude chill second isn’t bad you’re not a failure


LevelUpGavin

I'm not a winner.


[deleted]

I disagree


LevelUpGavin

How?


ToT3344

How many players were attending? Second place is extremely good, ya know.


fishbujin

2 would be a funny answer.


LevelUpGavin

I wanna say like, ten. Half of them were like, eight years old.


ToT3344

Even still, you did really well regardless. You even got close to winning the whole thing, one stock away. With a little more practice you could win one eventually. Don’t take it to hard on yourself.


LevelUpGavin

I can't exactly be easy on myself for blatant failure..


Slow_Mangos

Dude, it's just a game. Holy shit.


LevelUpGavin

It's pride, prizes, skill, talent, respect and a good time I'm not having.


Slow_Mangos

It's a game.


ToT3344

You’re being a BIT dramatic, mate, just move on.


LevelUpGavin

I can't.. I'm by definition nothing but a loser right now. I don't understand how people can be happy and just accept defeat. I just can't. It hurts far too much to be a loser.


Slow_Mangos

Go to therapy.


LevelUpGavin

Go find something better to do than badger me.


ToT3344

I don’t know what to tell you then, you’re on your own. Just stop worrying about it and try again another time.

CadiaDiedStanding

well you can either lose to first place or to your own need to be first. You can be unhappy and accept defeat thats normal. Accept defeat graciously, be unhappy, and then be as best as you can next time.


Syrin123

The first one you don't need. The second is just stuff. The next 2 you don't get for winning. The fifth is only important to you; no else cares about it as much as you. And the last is mostly up to you.


DragonKing_Infinity

Yeah it can be tough but hopefully you won’t fail next time. Good luck

Second place is the first loser.
