What's been wrong with my life? Dont get me wrong, I'm not saying that I am homeless or that I'm drug addict or something. I just blew everything pretty much with stupid mistakes. I'm not where I should be, and I am nowhere near close to where I REALISTICALLY expected to be. I love basketball like you guys, but the fun isnt there. I dont know if I need a break, or if once I move past these(if I ever) problems it will come back.

If it's not fun, you should try and take a break, and see if you can find something else you like to do. You might even decide to return to basketball after a while. 19 is a prime age to do anything, so you should take advantage before you get too old and regret not doing everything you could when you had the chance.

If basketball's not as fun anymore, maybe it's because you spent too much time with it. Just give it a little break and you will return if you really want to and like to play.

Believe me... You'll be back. Just think of this as a sabbatical. I know how you feel, too. I went in a huge slump and had a string of games where I was by far the worst player on the court. I almost had a nervous breakdown due to other factors in my life. But then just when I thought I was going to give up, I started playing up to my potential again, and even though I wasn't "on fire", just getting into a rhythm and seeing improvement... What a rush.

It's addicting.

My therapist says otherwise. I am coming apart at the seams. I have to admit there is something legitimately wrong with me at this point. I've got some stuff to deal with. The fun is back in the game though, I played some ball early with some older guys and it was the first time I smiled in weeks. That's good sign.

I guess.

ill let the emoticons do the talking:



Translation/Walkthrough: Haha, your a dope. Seriously? You think life is messed up and irreparable? No you dummie, ive been there before. Whos to say if mines worse then yours was, but I remember (still fighting through it a bit) the angst and pressure. Its tough, and sometimes you gotta bite your lip to hold back the tears, but if every day in every way you get a little bit better then soon you'll be back on your pimp game.
