Success is temporary, and failure is inevitable — and that’s not only OK, but necessary. Failure helps us become whole — and understand the possibility that we don’t know everything after all. Because, friend : we are mutable. We’re temporary and fragile ! We’re water and star stuff and gelatin ! We are more like Jell-O than stone.
Failure is a victory : the stubborn survival of the self, and an expression of the confidence that you can make more for yourself once you’ve shut the door.
If anything, failure is a disruption of a storyline you’ve goten lost in. If success is the complete narration of a moment and an idea, failing at it is a twist in the chapter you thought you knew the ending to.
