I thought this was a bit extreme. Don’t you think?
I understand how this thought crossed her mind. She had never tasted a loss before. She had this reputation of being unbeatable, which I’m sure is a boost to the ego. She has tons of endorsements and followers. When any competitor gets a reality check that they aren’t unstoppable, self doubt can really set in.
Thoughts of suicide though? That seems a bit extreme and alarming to me. Although, her father committed suicide when she was 8 years old. It’s possible deep depression could run in the family. Mix that with the possibility of sustaining permanent brain damage in the future and you get a cluster fuck of potential issues that could pop up down the road.
With a rematch on the horizon, you got to wonder if she can rebound. If the self doubt is already in her head, she might already be defeated before a punch is even thrown.
