When I was offered a chance to go to Belgium and participate in the Failing Forward project I had no idea what it was.
I had never done anything similar before and had very little information about it, even in the first days I was there I was still a little confused.
But as soon as I dived in and let go of the voice in my head that tells me to stay quiet, I had such a great experience.
I didn’t really have strong opinions on failing at first because I had never talked about it with other people.
My opinions changed when I learned what failing actually is and how it’s possible to get through it...
...And get some good things out of it. I am also more aware of how to react and offer support when other people around me are going through the process of failing.
Ihave failed and I have felt like a failure before, just like everyone else. I know I will keep failing in the future but maybe next time I will move on, instead of beating myself up about it for a long time.
Failing makes us human and everyone does it.
But it’s up to you if you want to take something from it and learn or not.
