Welp, it finally happend. I finally got my feelings hurt at BJJ. I'm a 2 stripe white, and another guy I roll with pretty regularly is a 2 stripe white. He hits the gym with me on Sundays, and I've been trying to help him along with getting stronger and in better shape. He's been doing bjj about 3 or 4 months less than I have, and in all fairness to him, puts in way more time than I do with it. I go 2-3 times a week and he is there 5-6. A few days ago he got his 3rd stripe, and I got nothing. I have never in the past felt really jealous or upset or anything about anybody getting belt promotions/stripes, but this one really hit home for whatever reason. Just venting. I know most of you probably won't care and will tell me to check my ego at the door. It's just rough to see a guy who has been doing it less time than you surpass you so quickly.
