This Is How An Athlete Will Love You Differently

1. We won’t tolerate your extreme laziness.

Sure, we’ll bum it out with you on our off days, but if your daily plan is to sleep until three and eat leftovers, we’re not into it. Get up or get out.

2. We are passionate as hell.

The game has taught us this. From hours of practice to day after day in the gym, we’ve learned that when you love something (or someone), you give 110%.

3. We’re used to tough love.

We’re used to coaches and parents ripping us new ones. And we’re our own worst critics. Tough love has helped us get our sh*t together and made us successful. But it can sometimes hinder our relationships.

4. We will push you to be the best version of yourself.

For years we’ve set goals and worked our a$$es off to reach them. We’ve had hard days, sore days, sad days, and almost-give-up days, but we’ve pushed through. And we love you, so we’ll push you, too.

5. We take responsibility for our shortcomings.

We know when we f*ck up on the field. And we’ll be the first to apologize to our teammates. When you’re a part of a team, you carry the team on your back. And the same goes for our relationships.
