In a debate, there is often a winner and a loser. The last time that I had a debate with someone, I was the loser. But is the word “loser” too much for the one defeated? Let me ask you a question, if you lost to someone, and you were called loser for that, how would you feel? (While writing this makes me feel “unsportsmanly” but what the heck)
For me, the word loser is denying the fact that you lost, making excuses for the things that cannot be excused, failing to even try to understand others points of view.
Making mistakes does not make you a “loser”. I think that mistakes are treasures that will remind you not to do the same wrong thing again. But someone who does not see the value of mistakes is the TRUE loser. And someone admitting that they committed mistakes and cherished these is still a WINNER.
I am a loser. And I plan to change that now that I realized these things.
(Just an opinion :D)
