I already thought of resigning when my Queen was pinned and eventually captured in move 27. I told myself to just go on with the game anyway. I saw the check against his King at the back rank but I never saw that my Knight was guarding an escape route so that I would eventually capture it and win the game.
Maybe that's just how life is. Your previous wrong moves do not necessarily take away your chances to win in life. Keep moving.

I had seven blunders in this game. One blunder can already be costly but I managed to win just when my time was getting over.

Perhaps that is just how life is. We blunder a lot. But let us never cease doing our best and whatever is right. Our win may just be another move away.

I love this game. My opponent was able to promote a pawn into another queen so he had two queens on the board.
And with the time remaining for me? What a comeback.

Complacency is the real enemy in chess. It's more of a player's inner battle.
