I have a friend that I like to play games with, but they always win! Even in a game of chance where I should be able to win some of the time – they win. It makes me want to stop playing. How can I learn how to win?
Dear True Winner,
Every time I play reindeer games, I try really hard and then someone else does better than me and makes it look soooo easy. Sometimes, I just want to turn on my hooves and give up! But, then I remember the reason I was playing in the first place – because it’s fun! The point of a game isn’t winning, it’s playing. You may not win the game, but you get time with your friends, fun, and a sense of challenge. So really, when it comes to games – there’s no way to lose. Once you realize that, you win at life.
