Question: I am an 18-year-old girl and I'm very good in sports. My problem is I'm better than boys in some sports and that makes them shy away from me. Are they jealous or what? Should I not try as hard so the guys will not get mad at me? Can you help? Answer: Take Solomon's advice, "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might" (Ecclesiastes 9:10). Don't do less than your best at anything. Developing and enjoying athletic skills with a proper altitude is rewarding. Other students will respect you and cheer you on including the guys. But life is not all sports. Social life and interaction with members of both sexes is important, too. Be sure you develop a warm, friendly personality. Show respect for others who may not be as skilled in sports as you are. Encourage others and strive to avoid seeming like a show-off.
