Have you ever felt like you've always turn your parents/loved ones down? It's like they never seem to be proud of you in everything you do. And you helplessly look for ways to make them proud of you.

yes I totally felt that way until about 4 years ago when my brother started doing way worse than me and now I'm suddeny the "golden child". also I got married and my parents LOVE my husband so suddenly I look better in their eyes.

I failed my parents in a way that I didn't get to have high grades this ninth grade. I just have some problems with myself and some emotional problems too. I couldn't understand what my logic was really trying to say. I also got a change in priority but now I think it has come back to normal :)

yes in my life i have made my parents down that is when i was failed in my 11th standard as i had never failed in my entire life .that day i just cant forget it as many things turned upside down for me which i couldnt even manage.so that day i felt really bad about that and what i came to know is the value of life and how important it is when we come under situations like this.

It's not that I felt I let my loved ones down, I indeed let them down not ones but a couple of times already and you feel like walking without a head when you see them, meet them or talk to them. It's like the whole world is on your shoulders, like one foot is in the grave. But if they love you truely then they would treat you as a friend and as a family then failure is not so hard after all.
