I've been doing gymnastics for 8 years. To me, gymnastics is unlike any other sport. You need physical and emotional strength to accomplish what you want. No matter how frustrating the sport is, its hard to live without when its not in your life. I've been dealing with an injury for 11 months now. This is the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with in my life. Gymnastics has torn my life apart but it's something that made me who I am. I've been yelled at, I've cried countless tears, and I've experienced things people may not have, but gymnastics is the only thing that completes me. There are days when I went to gymnastics and hated it, and wished I wasn't there. Now I realize how grateful I was to have it. I was able to do something I love with the people I love. Occasionally in gymnastics I felt like giving up. Sometimes coaches expected so much from you that it makes you cry. Its frustrating when you can't do a skill the right way. There is always people that judge you and only tell you what you're doing wrong. Without gymnastics im lost. Im depressed, im frustrated. There is never a time I think about it without crying. To be a gymnast you have to be strong. Gymnastics can destroy you; it can make you laugh, cry and smile at the same time. While you're competing you have that special feeling in your stomach that lets you know its all worth it. Your leotard becomes your best friend. Its impossible for me to live my life without gymnastics. I didn't realize how much I appreciated doing the sport. I have a fracture in my lower back, which isn't getting better. People tell me to quit gymnastics because you get hurt too much. It breaks my heart, because gymnastics was my life. Nothing will ever change my mind about my love of the sport. Some days I feel like giving up, like quitting. But there is something about Gymnastics that I just can't let go of.
