I am privileged to be working with different types of college students. Most often, their visits complete my day. Take this day for example. Two of our student athletes came to visit. Aside from our usual chat about their trainings, practices, exams and everything in between (like annoying coaches, hgh supplements that are not effective, among many others) one also shared how frustrated he is about his family life. He relayed that it was his father’s fault that his parents separated before his mother died. He badly misses his mother who is very supportive of his passion for sports. But despite his family problems, he continue to excel in his chosen sports. He was once into volleyball and for the past five months, he is training for badminton and he is one of our best players.
You would think that we were all tears when he was sharing his story but we were not! I was actually covering my mouth to prevent my laugh because he has this funny way of making serious topics light and well, funny! I understand that it is his way of coping and admire him for that.
