Anyone who’s lived any length of time has stories like this — the ones we keep to ourselves because we are ashamed of our failure(s). But because of them, we learned what does and does not (sometimes emphatically does not) work for us. Thanks for airing it out, for all those who have yet to fail, those who currently are, those who have in the past, and those who have learned from it. (That’s all of us.) It’s just a normal part of life.
