This society learns us the fact that failing is *bad* and a shame.
Let me tell you: it is *not*.
Be proud of failing.
You tried something, and even if you did not succeed at your task, you learned something: this way does not work, for this reason.
That's like… The 101 of learning.
Making people ashamed of failing is a really fucked up thing to do.
@Electron I tell people all the time that I learn best by failing! It sometimes drives my buddy Nick nuts because I ask him for painting advice and then do things the wrong way anyway because I need to *see* why it’s wrong.
@Electron Absolutely. When I was a teen I had a quote to this point from one of the Roosevelts on my desk and read it constantly because it was so hard to keep going and believe when all I saw was failure.
But I did keep going, and I did learn, and only because one of the first things I learned was that failure is it's own kind of victory.
@Electron Failing is learning, at least if you do it right.
@Electron Y'mean, like failing at being a Senator and becoming Secretary Of State, and failing at that, and running for President twice and failing at that, too, because you're basically a rotten, venal excuse for a human being?
get out of my mentions.
shame, failure, some capslock Afficher plus
Yeah i remember being so fricking ashamed as a kid whenever i failed or did something wrong or 'knew' sonething incorrectly or didn't know a thing it seemed i everyone else did. And because i had no ability to recognise or manage bad feelings i just knew "this is bad, AVOID AT ALL COST"
Did not benefit me one little bit.
Thank you so much for posting

Je parle de tout et de rien, de moi, de geek, dev, technologies, de libre un peu peut être, de féminisme / sujets lgbt+, de trucs plus généraux aussi, je râle, bref tout un paquet de trucs et le tout en 5000 caractères⁽¹⁾ (et j'ai même pas fini) ; mais j'essaie de toujours rester ouverte à tout sujet. :)
