    Try Again

    I am not afraid to fail at anything cause I can always try again. Dont ever try anything to dangerous though.  Everyone fails sometimes. It is the joy of getting it right after trying so hard.

    I Am Not Afraid Of Failure

    I'm not afraid of failure.  I was always good at spelling never failed it.   I'm good a cooking too.  However when it comes to math or history I have failed.  Failure isn't life threatening.   There's saying if you don't succeed at first try again.

    Just Keep Trying

    It is all to easy to fall into the trap of seeing my life as an endless list of failures (even some of the “wins”  sometimes feel like failures to me.)  But that’s just the old devil Depression whispering in my ear, and I have learned to ignore him, mostly. They still...
