Personal Failures

I am who I am because, literally, I failed at everything else ;)

Great wise scholar of healing with pencil and paper!

Agatha Christie put it best: "Most successes are unhappy. That's why they are successes--they have to reassure themselves about themselves by achieving something that the world will notice...The happy people are failures because they are on such good terms with themselves that they don't give a damn."

(Sparkling Cyanide)

As a charter member of the Not Terribly Good Club, I have found that giving yourself permission to fail is very freeing. It frees you from being one of those uptight perfectionists who suffocate without constant external validation and applause.

I dunno about "fail". More like finding a proper fit.

Well, then I'm glad you failed at so many things and not at making cartoons :)
