Your story resonates me.
I am hardworking and persistent, but that didn't stop me from deeply hurting when life just can't seem to stop throwing adversaries at me.
The problem, as Nancy Colier once pointed out, is that we try to learn lessons from failure too soon. We try so hard to make it so easy to shrug off the irritability in failure, deeming it okay.
You've expound this topic really well, Jessica.
Even though failure is paramount to success, that doesn't make it suck any less. True.
Thank you for this amazing story.
