Within the week after competing in the finals at the 2016 Olympic Trials, I wanted all of my village, my Olympianites to know I was ok, that I am ok. That I am resilient, and will find strength soon enough. But here is a piece of the raw struggle us dreamers go through after feeling like a failure. After facing a closing of a dream. I have never faced this before, and it is NOT easy. But wow, I wouldn't change a thing.
