I don’t mean cutesy memes…
Hang on. Failure means that you LEARNED something, right? I mean, if you look at something and say, ‘Wow, that was @#$%%^ up!’ What was your next step?
I’m thinking you inhaled. BAM! Another chance.
You will never be perfect, I’m sorry, mostly because I won’t, either. Damned lack of perfection!
I don’t know where you are on the continuum of active/ passive/ objective/ subjective/ rolling with shite/ lolling in shite but if you can get yourself OUT, do so!
That may mean calling a friend or five. It may mean attending some free meetings (support group) or finding a psychologist or psychiatrist to get some meds and one on one spilling your guts to somebody paid to listen.
ANYTHING inclusive/ supportive — not enabling but LOVING (at least ‘accepting’). If it’s an individual or group that says, ‘we love you,’ then tells you that you’re evil…I’m going to step right up now and say THEY’RE NOT LOVING. Watch for that. I’ve fallen for this many times, too. When you find yourself in a similar situation, find something else.
Am I excited that I haven’t achieved millionnaire status by drinking coffee or whiskey with friends? I’m not yet consulting ukulele artists for big bucks?
Am I getting up everyday and ROCKING THIS (even if it doesn’t impress you)? Guess that’s perspective. I’m a massive failure to some (and I’m sure because I’ve been told that!) but I think that I’m employed and constantly self-improving — and trying to share good things! That sounds pretty good to me.
