Does Anyone Else Feel Like a Failure in Life?

I know I do.Image result for overcoming adversity

Every day.

Of every year.

Perpetually.

Failure in life.  Parenting.  Citizenship.  Relationships.  CrossFit.  Work.  Eating.  Nutrition.  As a wife.  Being a good person.  Caring for others and about others.  Doing things for others.  Being humble.  Cleaning my house.  Reaching out to others.  Getting together with others.

Luckily, failure is temporary and you get another chance.  You can’t dwell on it.  You can’t let others make you feel guilty over it.  It’s how you react in the moment.  You can either let it bring you down or use it to do better next time.  You do the best you can with what you have at the moment.  It’s who you are that will shine through…

Trust in that on the days you feel you can’t do anything right.

It’s who you are at the end of the day that matters…

  1. I don’t view you as a failure. look at your cross fit thingee. you’re doing something that I can’t do any more and you seem to be doing it very well. that’s a “good on ya” thingee.

    1. Thanks…other areas of my life seem so. Mistakes, words, anger, etc…It seems it’s something every day. It’s trying to accept the fact it’s always something I’m working on! Thanks for your encouraging words!

  2. I have this other weird thing going on where I have achieved so many of the things I set out to do in life, only once I achieved them, I realized that maybe they weren’t all they were cracked up to be. Am I full of gratitude for my life? Absolutely. Do I feel like a failure? No, I don’t. Do I think I need to figure out the next part? Yep. And I am a little nervous about the work it’s going to entail, but I know eventually it’s going to feel like a party! I just need to get my head in the right space. 🙂

  3. What a relief to be able to admit that I do feel like a failure in so many things!
    I want to offer you a note of caution I wish someone had offered me, regarding training. I pushed myself very hard, thinking I’d build my stamina in the field and strength in general. What happened was the reverse~I now have arthritis in every joint. I blew my knees at the gym, working with a (very bad) trainer. At 54, there are times I can barely walk across the room, let alone visit a favorite trail. So, please be gentle with yourself.
