Playground – Failure
Failure brings us to our knees. We learn something about ourselves we can’t stand seeing: that we may be inept, disliked, unwanted and worse. There is no better way to understand our own mind than through these feelings. To really “know” them (and understand their exaggerated power to derail us) means we can put our mind to the problem – our higher brain, which ultimately helps us be more reasonable, and plan.
