Sometimes failures will come in a hard way that's why Im losing hope and i want to vanish in this cruel world. But there are also times that i can easily accept my failures and ready again to face another trials in life. Most of all i am very thankful to God all the help he gave me. How about you, do you accept your failures in an equal way?

I would define the word failure as EMBARRASSING. Embarrassing in the sense that if you failed to do what you want or in whatsoever undertakings, frustrations occur. However, As I based it to my personal experience, I handle failure positively. If I failed in what I do, I will gladly take it as charge to experience. Considering that I am not perfect. People learn from there own mistake or failure. That will also serve as stepping stone for them and some people take that as an inspiration to go on and succeed in life.

I do thank god for my failure. The people who dont know how to deal with anything but hand outs and praise will eventually come on hard times and not know how to deal with it. I give myself a pep talk about how it wasnt ment to be and that god has a plan and if that job didnt fit it had to be extracted from my life.

When i was younger and still inexperienced in life, i always complain and question God's providence everytime i faced troubles.But as I get older my mind gets broader too and learned to understand and give rationale to every failures that comes my way.to have a better life if not perfect is to take our failures as our guide to do things right

Hi,cu,It is very easy when you accept that failures are steps for success.Every body on the earth once or twice faced failures.If we understand that we have to lead life irrespective of failure or success,lead life by thinking about failures only is waste of time and it not a successful person character.All the best and have a nice time.

Success and Failure mostly comes alternatively in anyone's life,, so its not a big deal to think and spend a whole lot of time upon it, as life goes on, one should always select the right path,and try to be always positive about various aspects of life...

Hi cupcyke ,after reading your post, I remember the lines i read in a poem which says that joy and sorrow are part and parcel of our life.When our work brings us success we are overwhelmed wit joy but when in brings failure we are filld with sorrow,losing all our hope.All human in tis world sould have the mentality to accept success and failure in the same way.

Your life does not contain 100% successful. Failure would result in sadness and disappointment. It's very human and natural. But, do not dissolve in grief. Take a lesson from the failure and get up to succeed.

I normally stay depressed for sometime and then get over it by explaining things to myself.I do not have friends so all I do is pray to God and wait till he does something good for me.And I find it works for me.I have realized that whenever anything bad happens,I have to wipe my own tears.Being dependent on another person does not help because after sometime people get tired of you.It is our responsibility to analyse our own failures,the reasons behind it and it is for us to find solutions and overcome hurdles,strewn along life's path.I am a firm believer in God and I think all failures are ultimately God's plan to make us learn more from life and this is the way we grow.

Everybody has success and failures in life. I tasted failure very early in my life, when I was not able to pass out from my school final exams in my first attempt, but it made my will stronger, and I cleared it in my second attempt, and then got into the Univercity, and finished my graduation, with flying colors. After joining in my present job, I had seen so many success and failures. I have also made some wrong decessions, and my advice is before making a vital deccision, think once, twice, thrice before coming to the conclusion. Of course, accepting failure is quite hard, but what to do we are all common people, and success and failures are part of our lives. Yes god is always a great help, as he is the only person who understands and helps us by offering his shoulders for us to cry.

I do have my share of failures in life. But I do not consider them much as failures. Usually when it happens, I just accept that it was not for more and there is something better. There are times that I really want it, so I try really hard. Thankfully God has been kind and good to me. Though it may not always be the things that I need, there is always something that comes in answer to my quest.

we learn and grow thru our failures in life. Each time something goes wrong we learn a little more.

If you can learn a lesson from your failure, it is not really a failure. It is a success.

The same way what you said...... If failures occured due to me then I will not feel more, at the same time if it will affect other happiness or privacy then I will fell very badly. Somebody will post unnecessary complaints to me which I never did, then I will start cry. But my mind will tell me that dont cry... dont cry... but my heart will never listen to that. I will accept my mistakes always and I will try to solve it at the same time. Regarding this I will ask others to tell some ideas to solve the problem which occured and I accept valuable suggestion from others.

Hi,cup,Failures are the steps for victory.Take any body who got success are definitely faced a lot of struggle and those who withstand the troubles only taste the success.THE SUCCESS COMES ONLY WHEN YOU ACCEPT FAILURE AND THINK TWICE FOR THE REASON.Have a nice time and all the best.

Hi cupcyke, most people hates the word Failures.Every one wants success in life,thats why we work hard for it.But we are not perfect,we are just human beings.For me failures is not a big deal,It is a big challenge that a person should accept.what is important is to take that as part of life,and move on.Have a nice day!

..before, I'm really hard up coping with difficulties of life.. but when I grew up and I went to college, I really have to stand on my own.. That's the time when I started giving everything to God.. when I learn to let go and accept things, that's the time I was able to take things lightly and I do my best to look at the brighter side of things.. At present, I always cling to God because He alone is my helper and provider.. I know and I believe that I can overcome everything with Him.. God bless..
