When I tried to be everything, I failed myself
When I accepted the status quo and conceded to the circumstances, I failed myself
When I settled in a toxic relationship, I failed myself
When I shut my eyes and became oblivion to the truth sitting right beside me, I failed myself
When I let go of the opportunities I knew in my heart were a precious life’s gift and asked life to offer it in more opportune time, I failed myself
When I pretended to be someone else and tried hard to look like a protagonist of a borrowed story, I failed myself
When I refused to raise my voice; silently meekly witnessed an act of cruelty, I failed myself
When I was too ashamed of owing up my own weaknesses and character flaws, I failed myself
When I was too uptight to embarrass myself in farce of feeling empowered, I failed myself
When every bone in my body was screaming in pride to accept a failure, I failed myself
When every time I was chasing perfection, I failed myself
Of all the times I failed myself, I learnt something new about me
Of all the times I failed myself, I grew stronger than before
Of all the times I failed myself, I had hope and music
Of all times I failed myself;I prayed. I prayed to the universal energy called almighty to show me a way
Just like everything, I learnt that failure too is a temporary state of mind
Failure makes us humble and gives us a fresh perception.
It is a kind of depression which makes us appreciative of joy.
What are the times when you have failed yourself?
