he is 16. not that he is right, but it's understandable that he cannot yet control his emotions.
by the stages of grieving, he is doing ok..
1. denial: it's not my fault
2. anger: Fuck Niko, he threw me off of the team.. <- he is here!
3. bargaining: ok, maybe i didn't performed my best, but i could have a longer stint
4. depression: Niko was right, I suck.
5. acceptance: It was a good try, I know I am good enough but things just didn't work out. I know what to do now!
