You can be who you are and there is a spot for you in this world where you can fit in just the way you are.
Don’t listen to them grownups when they say you need to have contempt for your opponents in order to get ahead.
See, Josh Waitzkin in the movie, refuses to be unkind and even offers a draw because he hates to see his opponent lose the game (chess). In my eyes if you have that much empathy regardless of the outcome of the game, you are a winner! BTW he wins the game.
