Missing a wide open goal, scoring on your own goal, or simply having an injury that keeps you from the game you love can be very difficult. In my personal experience as most soccer player, I have gone through adversity and was very resilient and quick recovering in some and prolonged the effects with others. There are a few things that I have learned along the way.
Early in my soccer career I had a dream to play professional soccer. I was very fortunate to stay relatively healthy and not miss much of any soccer up until high school.
