You are what you write. Illusion and Reality...I reside in between. Where are you?
Prompt: Where do you think fear of failure comes from? Was there ever something that you had feared you’d fail at but didn’t?
A very big, painful, topic that touches almost everyone from childhood through old age.
How about unsuccessfulness?
or more serious kinds of failures: abortion, miscarriage, breakdown, stillborn. or a simple malfunction.
Then there’s a mistake, a fiasco, a mess,
Or in showbusiness we have a turkey, a flop, a bomb, a washout, a boxoffice disaster! (I think ‘Pan’ just had one this weekend.)
The fear of failure drives all humans to try, hope, wish...to avoid all the above plus about a thousand other kinds of failures.
Little things like: out of gas, dead battery, parking ticket,
Microsoft’s blue screen or a dead black screen. Our highly technical world lives with failure every day.
In other parts of the world a hungry child is a kind of failure, or a hundred-thousand refugees, or a million homeless.
Brace up folks...>>>iggy
