Memories of P.E

Sports in school only bring back awful memories of getting hit by the ball on the face, getting a C for Physical Education when all my other subjects are A. In school we had 4 sports houses (Red, Yellow, Blue and Green) I was in Red. During P.E classes, we have to play competitive games between the houses and there was always unequal numbers between the houses. So I was always sent to other houses whenever there was extra people in my house cause I was the weakest link. No matter how hard I run, I was still last. And whichever team I am in they will end up losing. Maybe having me in the team just demotivates everyone.
It hurts so much when you feel unwanted and useless.
It always made me feel inferior. I always dreaded going to after school sports practise which was compulsory. I always try to pretend to be sick but dad saw through me of course and would not get me a doctor's note.
One day when I got back from school, I told my Aunt I felt like such a loser and she said "... there is nothing much you can do cause this retardness in sports is a genetic thing, everyone in the family suck at sports. People are just different. Some are better in some stuffs, some are better in other stuffs. You have to learn to be thankful for the things You are good at."
As I look back now, I am grateful for those awful memories of PE. The experience did make me stronger. Now no matter how people look at me, it affects me no more because I will always hold on to my aunt's words – People are just different.

    You are not alone!! I am also kinda retarded (actually i don't think it's a suitable word….less talent, perhaps?) in sport…Luckily last time in school the P.E was not really something people took seriously, just a period for those ppl to play football…and no exam for that, thanks god…But I did dread the latihan sukan or sukan tara very much…Even volunteered to give first-aid to avoid that…hahah…and yeah, your aunt is right. People are just different…thanks for sharing this brilliant quote!
