    Everywhere we turn, there has been someone, whether celebrity or noncelebrity, who has encountered pitfalls in their lives.  While for some people, such negative occurrences MAKES them stronger and even insurmountable, others fall in even a deeper and more abysmal morass.   

    There are some people who welcome and see such negativity as a part of life and their evolution.  Others are quite fearful of the concept of falling and failure.  Many people are raised with the concept that any type of failure is bad and reflects upon them as people.   There are some people who are constanly reminded by parents and other relatives of their failures.   Ohter peoplle are inculcated with the premise that failure is a learning process and a part of life.  When they fall or fail, they are embraced and supported and told that this falling and/or failure does not distract from them as a person.   In other words, falling and/or failure is what ONE makes of it.  Do you agree? Disagree?

      Agree.  We all fail, fall or have shortcomings in our life at one time or another.  It's how we use these as learning processes so we don't repeat the same mistakes.  We should become better after a fail or fall or shortcoming and not take it to heart.  What doesn't kills us makes us stronger! smile

        Totally agree.  It is a SHAME of how we are inculcated from childhood that FAILURE is akin to A MORTAL SIN.  Many children are inculcated that once they have fallen and/or failed, LIFE IS OVER and THEIR CHANCES ARE RUINED.

    I very much agree with you. Everybody falls, fails, falls short. It's up to us to choose to learn from our mistakes or not. Those who do, get better. Those who don't continue to make the same mistake over and over again.

    I do agree somewhat.  Somewhat because when failing or falling is a benefit to the person it isn't either, it becomes a learning experience.
