Even if I am not Good at it!
I would much rather put all of my effort into Chess, even if I am not good at it. I have always been average, just average. Both in intellect and physique. My parents, the strictest of beings believed me moreso. And like many of the average adolescence, I resented them for it. I resented them for believing so much in me that maybe their way of showing me made no sense whatsoever. That their persistence in my mental ability, was like salt on a slug. I shriveled under so much criticism. I naturally love challenges, and none pose more challenges than Chess. I am new to this world. I am 22 years old, and I wish I had that spark I have now to pursue this. Back when the best compliments were harsh criticism, I should've persisted more. Everything that Chess is, and has to offer is what I have wanted all this time. Now I am looking forward to challenging my dad in Chess, he is much older now, and less of a critic.
