We’ve all failed at something, at one stage of our lives. But that doesn’t define who we are. I’ve failed a lot in life; in school, in relationships, in friendships, in business ventures and even at friendly games. Failing is part of the learning process. And boy, I’ve I learnt a lot!
Having a failed relationship or marriage doesn’t mean you’re a failure in life. It just means that those situations didn’t go as planned. And that’s okay! Take your ‘L’ (your Lessons), and move on. What’s the point in holding unto failed experiences, when there’s so much life to live? Why cling unto bad memories, when you can make great-new ones?
As humans, we have the tendency to always remember bad times more than the good ones. We have the unhealthy desire to beat ourselves up, when we should be lifting ourselves from the hurt and pain we feel. The downside to not letting bad memories go, is that, we end up being bitter, ugly in character, unforgiving and full of strife. To what end really? To whose benefit?
Failing is part of our success story. It’s something that should spur us unto greater works, rather than drag us down emotionally. Failing isn’t Failure, but a roadmap to success.
