I learn fencing and I feel like giving up. I've learned this sport for years, and I've never got a good score in competitions. I'm going to miss my coach and friends. What should I do?

Most people in life end burnt up stuck at a dead-end in life. Why? You might ask. That's because they haven't pursued what they loved in life. They went into the rat race for whatever materialistic goals they wanted to achieve. If you truly love the sport, keep at it. We consider many people to be successful now while we would've considered them failures in the beginning. A good example of fencing would be Alexis Jemal who started fencing seriously in her sophomore year in college. If you truly love the sport then, don't let the scores stop you. If not now, at one point you will achieve the success you're wishing for. But, if you're pursuing the sport just for fame and scores in competitions then it might just not be for you. Don't be discouraged by that though. The world is like a machine, no part comes extra. You will surely find something that you truly love and excel in it.
