The thought of failing in something is enough to scare anybody.
Failure isn’t just about not doing well in exams or not passing your driving test; Failing has a variety of different meanings.
I couldn’t help but feel like I had failed today – failed myself, failed my boss and failed my clients – all because I had to call in sick after being up and down all night with food poisoning. I felt really guilty like I was letting everybody (including myself) down, but why? Everybody gets poorly every now and then, right? I physically and mentally couldn’t go to work today, so why do I feel so guilty?
