It takes courage to succeed,
and it takes courage to “fail”.
Accepting that letting go,
not reaching the ideal,
not being first,
not becoming what society tells us
to become or achieve,
takes sometimes more courage
than actually reaching those ideals.
Being a “Failure” in the eyes of others
while knowing deep down
that you have done your best,
have been true to yourself,
have persevered against many odds
and have found yourself –
even if different than others want or expect
and maybe even different than you yourself
might have expected.
“Failure” takes courage,
and it might mean
to succeed in becoming
who you are meant to be,
instead of the roles, functions or images
others prescribe to you.
