Is this where the majority of the western society sits? Not trying anything for fear of failure, thinking success happen because failure does not? Not enduring scrutiny because we can’t handle the diagnosis. We have mentalities that believe failure and not being perfect will give people poor self esteem. But self esteem comes from honestly trying and experiencing- not from feeling good because we did not go out on a limb. We underestimate people and do not set up proper channels and safe environments for failure.
