At some point in your life you have failed. Whether it be a school assignment, a relationship, a project, or a job, we have all experienced failure. It is something that is a part of life and cannot be avoided. Some people choose to think of themselves as the failure when something goes wrong, when in reality that is doing harm to yourself.
When you fail at something it is the single moment, or event, that is what has failed. You did not fail. What you tried just did not work. It is the same concept as forgiveness. You need to move on with your life and stop associating yourself with the failure. Accept that it happened, forgive yourself, and move on. It was an event and it is done and gone. Yesterday ended last night, meaning that it is over and done with. No matter how much you may want to or may try to, you cannot go back and change the past.
It is much healthier and beneficial to instead learn the lesson from the failure and to simply move on. What good will it do for you to beat yourself up over something that is done? Nothing! It feels good to be happy so why stop yourself from feeling that? In the grand scheme of things what is wallowing over something you failed at going to change? NOTHING!
Don't let failure be a personal label, let it be just something that has come and gone. You choose how you react to life and what it brings you. Life does not make you feel or act a certain way, you do! You are NEVER a failure!
