A man so much of sports is mental, even e-sports like League of Legends has teams which often employ sports psychologists. When I was young I played a lot of tennis, I did lessons so I got wasn’t too bad. But I went to a lesson one day and got it in my head that I wasn’t doing well and instead of just hitting balls naturally I started analyzing every stroke, and like any sport or instrument if you do things while thinking about it too much you start making mistakes. Making mistakes made me hit the wall even harder and I kept spiraling down.
To anyone who is having trouble putting their finger on why his face looks off, check these photos. It’s easy to notice how the tigers’ faces look progressively droopier and misshapen as their fur goes lighter. Golden and Snow White tigers are byproducts of white tiger breeding, and the consequences of such intense inbreeding are very visible. Wow. The ones near the bottom are downright heartbreaking to look at. They just look so… sad. I hope that’s just me projecting my human nonsense onto an animal, but I see pain and sadness in a lot of those eyes.
