The game might feel over, but it's never over.
Reassess. Play again. Start over.
Where did you go wrong? What did you learn? What can you do differently?
If you need to cry, do it. If you need to scream into a pillow, do it. If you need to find the nearest punching bag, do it.
Let it all out and feel those difficult emotions. But after all is said and done, you gotta get back up, look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you still got this.
Take a cold shower. That usually works. (No seriously, it lifts your mood, try it!).
Go through your morning routine.
Hit the gym.
Continue to do all the things you normally would when you felt strong, because you still are. In fact, you are stronger now because you know where you are weak. Now go out. Start over and kick some ass.
