It is often said that failure is necessary ingredient for success. However, when we experience failure, it can bring up all sorts of negative emotions.
Whenever we have a significant emotional event that results in failure, it can:
- Affect our identify and self-esteem.
- Cause us pain, shame, embarrassment and humiliation.
- Make us question our ability to achieve what we want in life.
- Cause us to avoid taking risks again or even quit on our dreams.
It’s important to be able to adequately process an experience we deem as “failure” because it will have an impact on what we are willing or not willing to do in the future.
