I’ll be the first to admit that I am a poor sport. I can’t fucking stand losing. I fucking snapped the joystick off of my T5 stick one day because I was so mad and it was the nearest thing, on top of breaking other miscellaneous shit.
I have a friend teaching me Street Fighter 4 right now since I just bought it. Pretty much owns me while teaching me over Xbox Live. I go through fits where I just don’t want to talk to him, and just want to break shit. He says be patient because I’m not doing bad for just having bought the game about 6 days ago, and he’s right that I should chill out, but fuck I despise losing more than anything. I’m in the “There’s no such thing as a moral victory” camp. I understand to analyze where I went wrong, but fuck trying to find a silver lining.
I’m really trying to handle it, because there have been incidents before where I’ve been so mad about losing that I lose focus, and basically go into rage mode.
I probably have anger issues according to my old high school coach, and my fraternities president.
How would you guys recommend I handle getting over losing?
