    Have you ever felt like your life is a complete failure?

    I am not depressed and have an optimistic view of the future,but sometime I feel as though I am a complete failure in life. Any suggestions

    Yep, and I'm convinced that this is a normal part of being alive. Because we possess the ability to be self-aware, our perceptions of ourselves are not always positive. They are influenced by our experiences as well as by everything that happens in the world around us. We often struggle with facing the reality that our actual lives do not match the expectations we had for ourselves. I believe that everyone experiences this at one point or another, and as long as you are able to experience this feeling without allowing it to depress you, then I think you're fine. Just realize that life isn't as bad as you think, and move on smile

    life is all about ups and downs.Every one passes through the bad stage, you are not alone. But being depressed is not the answer, the only thing that can solve it is through your positive perspective of  seeing through things.You should be communicating more with your closed ones, friends or relatives about the issues that you are facing. And chill! there is always a morning after a dark night, have patience

    Everyone feels like that from time to time, especially if your expectations of yourself or others are just way too high, Shakespeare once said: " I always feel happy with myself and others, do you know why? Because I don't expect anything from anyone including myself! Expectations always hurt...
    Take every day as it comes, relax, breathe, let go and just live...smile...

    Richard C Morais in his first novel The Hundred-Foot Journey thanked his wife and his daughter for standing by him through all the ups and downs that are every writer's lot, so true:) read more

    Your life can't be a complete failure, because you haven't lived out your life yet..One thing i realised along the way is that if you learn by your failings, then your not ever failing your "learning"..Another thing i realised along the way is that unless you actually love doing whatever your doing you will probably fail through "lack of motivation" (that's all it is),  but should see it as "learning" that it simply wasn't for you..We're expected to make many mistakes as we grow & learn, but like i say if we always learn from our mistakes then there no longer mistakes..So the answer is to find the things you "love" doing, & then the motivation comes instantly..You can't & won't ever fail at doing the things you love doing, the trick is finding them.
