I am thinking about life overall and I been thinking about the things that I have failed at in life and wanted to open up about how I deal with those failures. So I have a question my blog peeps, and this can be used as a writing prompt if you are a writer and like to do writing prompts. Question is below as well as my response.
Do you deal with failure positively?
When it comes to failure and I, we are never on the same page. So, to answer this question I do not deal with failure in a positive way. When I fail at something I am usual in an unpleasant mood. I take it to heart, and I feel like I hurt myself when I fail at something. I kind of shut down for a while and just be in a funk. I feel like it takes a while for me to fully process that I have failed. It is not a good feeling. I then start to question everything I have done leading to it. Feel like I must and work so much harder for me not to fail. Failure I know happens from time-to-time life is not easy and pursing your passions, your dreams there is a chance of failure. Me knowing this I still don’t like failing and feel like I am letting myself down or others. I know it is not okay for me to feel this way, but I do. Something I try to work on and know that everything will not always go my way. Failure is a part of life. Some of us need to accept that (ME). Learning to take things how they are when they arrive. Yeah, me and my Failures do not get along (LOL),
How do you deal with failure? How do you move past it? Care to share?
Thinking always lol and what is on my mind, really been on my mind is success and making money. Making my family happy. Failure is not an option, my feelings today. Just taking it a day at a time, getting stuff done of course me Ms. Perfect, I’m focused.
No work today so it’s a writing session type of day. Just doing me and my passion. Might brainstorm some titles for one of my books in progress. Cool type of day. Just Write, Just go with the flow. Again FAILURE is not an OPTION
How was your week? Any weekend plans? Any writing goals for the weekend? Happy Friday, Happy Writing!
When you hear the word failure what does it mean to you? To me failure is letting yourself down over and over, not doing what is necessary to succeed, or having things happen in the process of doing what you need or want, and not following your goals or dreams. Yeah, sometimes life steps in and stuff happens that you can not control, it is all about how you recover.
From time to time, I feel like I am failing in life and feel like a loser or failure. When I don’t complete some goals, I feel that I am letting myself down and being lazy even when I’m sick or just feeling down or lazy that day, and when I am not in the mood to write. Feeling like a failure is not okay to me maybe because I tend to be a perfectionist in everything I do. I want everything to be perfect and get pissed when it is not to my standards. Not good. I question myself when failing happens and think about the situation all the time. And of course, I get angry, sad, feel lost, feel like nothing. Always been this way yes even as a child. My parents use to say that I am my own enemy and I hold my own self back. My dad says it constantly and it something that I am very aware of. I know that in life their will be times you will fail, you must keep it moving
I just do not like it, losing, failing, none of it. Is it just me? Failure is not an option is a saying that constantly replays in my mind. Failure is not an option, you get knocked down, brush it off and keep your head up (I tell myself) Simple right?
What do you think? Have a good one! Please feel free to like, comment, and share your thoughts about failure. Love peace, happiness, and blessings all.
