Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
Well so is falling down.
But falling down isn't the important part as humans.
We are trained to focus on the falling down when what we really should focus on is getting back up.
Maybe we fell down 1,000 times, yet we got up 1,001 times.
You can't learn without falling
So that means you can't live without falling.
Stop shaming yourself for all those falls because you wouldn't be living now without them.
