Its heartbreaking to hear stories of individuals committing suicide due to failure in academics, relationships, loss of significant people, unexpected life incidents, etc. Is it worthy to end your life because you assumed that failure has no option? Many times its overwhelming to see how individuals perceive failure and the strategies they choose to cope with the same. The common elements in these scenarios are fear and rejection that’s linked with self-defeat thoughts like I am not good enough, I am a failure, I am a looser(widespread usage among youngsters).
“Beautiful failures” – a book written by Lucy Clark for parents on how to help their kids to cope with the today’s pressure cooker world.The title makes me think how a failure can be beautiful. Is it an Oxymoron like an open secret, clearly confused…?? Not really, because failure can become beautiful by modifying our attitude and thinking. A personal belief that you have failed and letting yourself brood over the same thought for a while would result in breeding an atmosphere of self-doubt which then endorses the original thought that you are not good enough… “ Fear “ attached to the thought “ You are not good enough” makes you believe that it’s a truth and stops you from trying again or trying new.
