78. Don't use another's approval as a measure of your own worth.




There are three types of baseball players: those who make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happens.
Tommy Lasorda

Baseball has provided so many learning experiences for you, and for Sweet Daddy and I.

Sometimes in a game, after you've hit, they pull you out so you can begin to suit back up in your catcher's gear. The idea is that it keeps the game moving along faster if you are ready to take the field - and you are the only one who requires a full get-up to get on the field!

However, this means that sometimes you don't run much past first or second base before they put a runner in for you.

This always  makes you upset.

And causes the kids to say ugly things to you. 

We talk about how you and I know why they pull you out - it has nothing to do with how you run, or how fast you are, or aren't. 

Kids can be mean. 

Don't use another's approval as a measure of your own worth.
