    She Makes Me Feel Like A Failure

    I don't understand why even when I do better than the normal, all she ever see is the bad or how I could have done even better. Why can't she accept that I did better than I normally do? If I had a low grade in a math class like an E and I being it up to a High C then why am I...

    Fear Of Failure And Failing

    I am in my 40s with no career and no accomplishments. Why? Fear of failure. My husband says that I underestimate myself and scared to try something different. Maybe so. As a child, I don't think I ever had a goal to strive for. I just floated through life. I went to college but...
