I blew it, again. I am a failure. Why should I even bother? I will never get it.
Do any of these sound familiar? Well I’ve been there, experienced and felt it. What I am learning and continue to learn is that “blowing it” gives me an opportunity to re-evaluate how to do it next time.
For example: It’s Saturday night, a group of friends call to go out for Mexican food. Dinner is great, but the next morning you wake up feeling bloated. Not only that, but you feel guilty and like you are the world’s biggest failure, which is a common feeling for many women.
You have two choices:
- Continue in the same pattern because you feel like there is no use in even trying.
- Evaluate how you could have done it differently and have a plan for the next time you go out for Mexican Food.
My advice to get over the feelings of guilt, is option number 2. You have never messed up so bad that you can’t get back up and try again. Need some more words for encouragement? Read these words of one of my favorite songs by Toby Mac, Never Give Up. .
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” (Thomas Edison)
