Although I may feel alone, at times, I know there are people that have my back, even if I don’t see them. It’s been a while since I showed my tumblr some legitimate love. Instead of expressing everything I want to say fully on the Instagram post, I’m choosing to do so here.
My experience my second year out of college as a professional athlete has been far from ideal. A lot of that may have something to do with the amazing hospitality that I received my first year. Maybe the culture here had a colder vibe. But the gloomy vibe that I feel when I’m not on the court most definitely factored into the negative energy I would feel when I was around certain individuals here. Compound that with constant dishonesty and deceit and your formula is all bad.
So I am here, going through a settlement and soon getting a much needed change of scenery. But not without recognizing the value of my experience here and taking out the positives. I’ve met some teammates who I will most definitely be lifelong friends with. My tolerance for dealing with ignorance has increased tremendously. I now recognize that my happiness and surrounding myself with positive people and energy is more important than anything when it comes to doing what I love. It’s ironic that this is all happening after the new year but they do say the new year is for new beginnings, right?
Thanks to all of those people who have and will continue to be there for me. I feel like I don’t let you guys know enough but I trust that you do.
