Don’t be so hard on yourself

Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Failure is something we all go through at one point in our lives. But it doesn’t have to define us for the rest of our lives.

When you fail, typically, you’re only failing in one area. So failure is an event, it does not define the whole person. Failing at one thing whether it’s something in your work or personal, does not mean you are now a complete failure as a person. Sometimes it’s hard to understand that. Sometimes our mind likes to be negative but don’t listen to it. You are not a failure.

It’s OK to fail. Just get right back up. Learn from it and try to get better. That’s all you can really do. If you’re human, it means you’re going to eventually fail or fall flat on your face. But don’t let failure  define you. And please don’t let it overwhelm you.
