I joined a new hockey team and myself and one other player had been treated in a negative way during our second game by our own team members. I was feeling pretty badly, especially for my teammate. I decided to email her and make sure she was doing ok and encourage her because I know she was feeling really down. She seemed very touched that I took the time to do that. After the next game we were invited to go out and I really didn’t feel like it but instead of holding a grudge I decided to join them and tried to get to know them. It’s going to be a challenging season but I’ve decided that I will be kind no matter what!
