Dear Vita: Accept that you will fail

By Teresa Gueco - August 26, 2019



Dear Vita,

This is a reminder that it’s okay to fail. That you will make mistakes and that it’ll be fine.

You will face crossroads and you will have to choose. And sometimes what lies ahead is not the best road and you have to forgive yourself for choosing wrong. You have to forgive yourself for being wrong and for choosing the second best answer.

I know that we were taught to succeed, we were given that push to get that goal, but what they forgot to teach us is how to cope up with failure. I’m not a pro but I want to share something which keeps me striving- it is acceptance.

Accept that you will be wrong. Accept that you will fall and you will be a disgrace while people talk about you. Accept that you are not perfect and that despite all the recognition that you accumulated all throughout your life- you will still fail.

Life is not honey and butter.

You have to be stung by a bee to get that honey. You have to work hard to turn that milk into butter.

Why are we so afraid to fail? Why are we so scared of being the talk of town? Why are we so scared of living the life with setbacks? Why do we hate having scars? Why do we fear being imperfect when we are living an imperfect life?

Why are we so afraid to fail? What do we have to learn to be better? Why are we so scared of being the talk of town? I don’t care what they said, I’m gonna prove them wrong. Why are we so scared of living the life with setbacks? What did we learn from those trials? Why do we hate having scars? These are my battle scars. Why do we fear being imperfect when we are living an imperfect life? I fail so many times but I am not a failure. I won’t let myself to be a failure. 

I can forgive myself for failing so many times but I couldn’t forgive myself if I stop trying and become a failure.
