I can’t speak for anyone else, but I made beating myself up a habit, an almost permanent fixture in my life. It was not until recently that I learned (and am learning) the beauty of failing and finding silver linings in those failures, whatever they may be.
I remind myself that no one else can have the same exact experience and I should not expect the experiences of others to mirror mine.
“Live", it’s a good thing to do.
Thank you for writing this then sharing it too.
