Success is a gift of life welcomed by everyone, either it is earned or not, it is cherished by all. Failure, on the other hand is a trouble-some foe which is not easily accepted by most, and life is an experience which gives you a taste of both.
Being a usual winner during my school life, i had never imagined of such a trial in my life ahead. This expectation was more than being over-expectant of life, and i thus learnt to face failure as well. I faced it truly when first year board exam result came out, i felt all my dreams shatter on that very moment and had nothing to look forward to, i stopped taking meals and talking to anyone, life felt like a path with no end and no aim at all…
I was taken care of not only by my family, but my friends as well. Being honest, i had thought that they’ll now consider me a failure and i would soon be thrown out of the group.. But what happened was completely opposing my expectations and my friends were the ones who help me come back to life… I would drone on only and only about my misery, and not even once did they showed their boredom..
That experience was so far the worse of my life and i now realize that even though that result bumped me off my aim and i had to go for something else but this is where my strength lies and that confrontation with failure gave me not only my true strength but i was also pampered by my friends alot.
Sometimes, failure shows you your true strengh, it is actually a blessing disguised, and it gives you things and experiences in life which might not be gained easily, hopelessness is not the way out.. moving on does the trick.. Cheers.. =)
