It was a matter of a lot of little failures

I know we tend to talk a lot about our big failures, failing in school, romantic breakup, losing a job, divorce, loss of custody, etc. Now, I’m on day to day living and I’m noticing that even the little failures can ad up, dropping a dish, losing my balance, not stopping to calm down when I begin to get nervous, etc. They can get me down just as much as real disasters.
