That I could have "it all".
Ugly Truth: You CAN'T have it all. You can't do everything at 100% and be successful at everything. Something's got to give. (In my case, housework is the first thing to go...)
The simple truth is that she lied.
Don't get your panties in a wad. I'm sure she didn't mean to.
I think that she's a product of coming of age in the 60's. She saw women's lib start to come to fruition... And she wanted that for her daughter.
But I just can't do it.
Sometimes I feel like I'm a disappointment. To her. To myself.
I feel like I should be able to do it all... Have it all....
But the truth is not that simple.
Truth is, in real life, you have to make choices. Sometimes really tough ones.
Sometimes, you do your best. And your best isn't good enough.
Sometimes, you fail. Period.
So how do you fail?
I think it says a lot about you as a person.
To be quite honest, facing failure makes me want to give up. It gives me a horrible case of the fuckits. That said, I'm WAY too stubborn to give in to that. I'm strong enough to refuse to give into my instincts in this case. I'm no quitter.
When I face failure, I pull up my big girl panties and keep putting one foot in front of the other. I take it like a grown up and move on.
And maybe that's what success really is...
How do you handle failure? Does it destroy you? Or are you able to move past it?
