You win some, you lose some. Recently, I experienced the latter.
Last weekend was the Pittsburgh Jiu-Jitsu Classic. It had been a few months since my last tournament and I’ve been looking forward to competing in the blue belt division since my promotion on Cinco De Mayo.
An employee was yelling at a customer when I got in line at the sandwich shop. This is one of my regular lunch stops, so I’m fairly certain it’s not part of their customer service. At the front of the line, a man yelled back.
Fear is a natural emotion. It’s a feeling induced by a perceived threat that can cause us to run, hide, or freeze in terror. Unless you’re like SM on the “World With No Fear” episode of Invisibila, you know what it’s like to have fear.
