Is there someone who keeps telling you that you’re a failure? Maybe not directly but subtly. This kind of behaviour is normally seen between children and parents or between students and the world. If you feel like a failure, you’re really not. Our society has made us susceptible to such thoughts very easily, but what we don’t know; is that everyone is successful at something. Not all of us are good at the same subject but many of us are the best at the subject of our choosing. If you’re having these thoughts remember two very important things: 1- you’re not a failure; you still haven’t found your true calling 2- you’re not a failure; it’d the world around you that has horribly high standards. 3- if you’re feeling pressured by your family into thinking such thoughts then remember that they don’t know the full story, you know you best. And no matter what anyone says if you know in your heart that you’re trying your hardest to be *better* or the best version of *you* then you have nothing to worry about. An arrow has to be pulled back torea y it’s target.
