We’ve all experienced failures: bad grades in school, not getting the job you really wanted, gaining weight, losing money, or feeling like a bad partner, sister, parent, or friend.
When you’re going through a tough time, the last thing you want to think about is what you can learn from the situation. I usually want to punch a pillow!
But after a while, you can look back on your failure and realize that something good DID come from the pain. It might not have been the outcome you wanted, but I’ve found that most people are grateful for the struggles they’ve faced (at least a little bit).
Think about a time when things in your life didn’t go as planned.
