What did your parents teach you regarding being fired from a job? Did they convey that being


fired from a job was a career-killer, disgrace, &/or a fate worse than the darkest hell? Or did they convey that being fired was just a mishap &/or when one door closes, other doors will be opened?

    Good attitude indeed. I was taught that being fired is a disgrace, a career killer, which is to be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. I was also taught that failure is UNPARDONABLE, UNFORGIVABLE! One MUST ALWAYS SUCCEED!

    that is the mature way to be. However, there are parents who refuse to tolerate failure of any kind. They endlessly rehash mistakes/failures that their children made. They believe that ALL must be PERFECT AT ALL TIMES!

    Wow, with all due respect, this sounds like a lot of people in your life who needed a bit of perspective. Everyone fails at something at some point - it's those who keep getting back up that find the best successes in life.
