Have you ever suck at something and you ended giving it up?

Sorry for using "suck" there. It seems to me like its actually the most real, most truthful word to place. So, have you? I had that experience before and lately I realize that I should quit quitting. I started figure skating at 14 and it seems to me like I am the oldest beginner in that rink. I considered it as a failure, and the sport, my frustration. But now I am starting piano...and I swear that even though I am already 16 and almost the oldest beginner in the studio... I will never give it up. Have you had something like this to happen to you?

Yeah, when I was younger I always tried to be Superman, but I suck at flying, so I gave it up... I am sorry the figure skating didn'twork out for you. As for the piano, keep on keeping on. Mozard was blind... Look what he did, just because he was determined. You just have to convince yourslef that you amy be the oldest in the class, but that is to your advantage, you will learn more and become the best. I went to college at age 33, I was the oldest in the class. Some students were only 18. It felt strange and at times it felt like I am not going to cope, I find it dificult to concentrate as the younger people around me can talk and concentrate. I just stuck it out and finished my course. Today I am happy I did it. You will look back and reap the fruit of your hard work. Blessings

The same thing happened to me with cycling. I tried and tried and tried, but I couldn't yet. But unlike you I have never given up. I am 26 years old now, but I am still confident that at some point of time in life I can learn it. It is sad to think about my trials.
