Keep working at it; keep battling.
No concern for resistance, no attention to past losses.
A man--a person--is not a cumulative effort of losses.
Losses are things that happen, inevitable, normal.
Don't lose perspective because you're in the midst of one now.
Regain that moxy and verve.
Don't accept a secondary position of value in your mind.
Don't let the opinions and condescension of others alter your self-concept.
Be strong, motivated, proud, audacious.
Don't let the emotions lead you.
Feel them...without being controlled or led by them.
YOU CAN DO THIS.
