I Root For The Underdog

irootfortheunderdog

Consistently, I like to root for the underdog.  I’ve always been that way.  I like to see someone who isn’t favored, succeed.  It’s not that I don’t like the favored person because I do.  But there’s something about the underdog that pulls at my heart.

What about you?  Do you feel the same way?

To me, there’s a magic in the underdog succeeding and I feel the need to support them.  I guess it’s how I like my people too.  Those that come off as braggarts or too high and mighty turn me off.  Those that quietly do well and succeed are the ones I like to stay in touch with and be around.

People who have overcome the odds are the most interesting to me.  It’s not that I wish anyone ill will, but when you have experienced hardship and come through the life lessons that test even the strongest of individuals, to me, there’s something magical about you.  I am inspired by those people.  I admire them.  I enjoy when they share their stories with me.  For those that life comes easily to, I like them as well.  It’s just that there’s a depth to those who have endured tough times.  I guess I feel a kinship of sorts to them because I have endured hard times as well.  Luckily, looking back in hindsight on my life, I realize that those life lessons made me the woman I am today so I don’t regret any of it, even though I wish much of it I hadn’t experienced.  But that’s life, isn’t it?
