Letters to Myla Rae - Failure
In fact, one of my best memories of childhood... was not being afraid to fail. I had friends who would cry or be scared shitless when they fail. Not me. Of course I didn't want to fail, but I was raised to not be afraid of failure itself. You see, if I passed an exam, I would get one present as a reward. But if I failed, I got two! One for trying, and the other to cheer me up. Well, that's from my mum (with my dad it was a different story, he would get very upset so we would keep my failures a secret from him. Haha). But with my mum, I can share anything with her. She always has my back, and she is by nature a very optimistic and encouraging person. I hope to be the same way to you too. I don't want to raise a fearful child. So please ah, don't be afraid of failure.
