What we don’t always take into consideration is the fact that a very common, and unfortunate, part of being human is failing. Whether we think we have everything figured out or not, the unforeseen obstacles that seem to insert themselves in our paths can sometimes take us by surprise. Sometimes, the setbacks that we face seem insurmountable. We might begin to believe that we failed for a reason, and that there is no possible way that we could ever be the people that we want to be. We stop having confidence in ourselves, and begin to believe in the worst case scenario a lot more readily than we believe in the possibility of success.
