We all need to face our fears at some point, but sometimes you're just not ready yet. This little boy knows what I'm talking about.
A video of 4-year-old Isaiah Lineberry facing a 5-year-old girl in a wrestling match back in December has been making the rounds on the internet recently. Isaiah apparently wasn't quiiiite ready to face his opponent, though. And so, he did what anyone in his situation would do: RUN AWAY!
Ah, our fight or flight instincts at work.
"I asked him afterwards, 'So why did you run?'" Isaiah's mom Alexis Slayers told ABC News. "And he said, 'I don't know, Mommy, but it was silly.'"
Hey, buddy. It's cool. We all mess up sometimes.
Slayers said that Isaiah has since bounced back, taking top four placements in several of his other tournaments. "It was just a fluke match," she says.
I'm sure Isaiah will grow up to be a great wrestler someday. Also, I'm pretty sure that little girl just became a feminist icon.
