I grasp the now damp paper in my sweaty, shaking palms. I never thought standing at the top of the auditorium could feel this bittersweet. Contradictions overwhelm me when I see the win on my page and the participation belonging to all the rest of my school.
I thought I wouldn't ever win a competition and furthermore, I wouldn't have guessed I'd feel guilt rather than any happiness. "Congratulations!" are spoken by all around but I can see the sorrow and pure envy behind the eyelids of my fellow students.
Why am I affected negatively by my success?
Please reply with any advice/anything to change! thanks guys >-<
