Failure Can Be Your Friend

I don’t know about y’all, but I really don’t like failure.

I put all this thought and effort into something, and then it doesn’t work. Nothing fun about that.

That said, I am learning to be friends with failure. You can learn as much from failure as you can from success. If I’m on a journey to do something better, whatever results I get can teach me something.

If I want to speak more kindly to my sweetie and I have a few blunt or harsh words, I can look at that failure (later after I’ve calmed down) and work to figure out why. In the future, I can be a bit more informed and attempt to do better.

Lesson learned.

Failure is success in progress. Albert Einstein
