Honesty...is the key to it all. It makes no sense to ignore the pain that occurs from the fall. Yeah, it hurts, and making it go away is a difficult task. Facing it head-on is even tougher, and makes you think the feeling is always gonna last...but it's gone now, and at least subsided to the point where it won't be coming back.
Eagerness...to make sense of everything that went down. Being unconcerned with how it makes you look, even if it comes off as lookin' like a clown. Others can't handle it when things don't go their way, but you do, which lets you know you're better now than you were in previous days...
Acknowledge...what made you feel like this in the first place. Sure it sucks, but it's even worse if you lie and wonder why you continue to finish last in every race. Some things don't make sense, but you still should acknowledge that they're there...and once you do, and patch your errors up, you'll get to the front, regardless of when or where.
Learn...that it's okay to fall, and normal to bruise. When it comes to people you love, the journey will be anything but a cruise. There are some parts on my body that hurt as well, so I know exactly how you feel. Just now that once you're 100 about it all, it makes it so much easier for 'em to heal.
