When you experience failure, there is this feeling that happens when you watch somebody achieve success, this feeling of “That should be me” sometimes hitting unexpectedly, sometimes not. This feeling, does not take into account what the successful person had to do, to achieve that success, nor the measures you, failing person, did not take, even right down to comparing sacrifice to laziness, like there is some sort of comparison to be made there, almost like we are ready and willing to make that comparison, to avoid the truth of the actual comparison and the fact that.. There really is not much of a comparison to be made. How convenient that we forget, that ultimately, we made that choice to be left behind and did so freely and even in anger, continue to make that choice even after the failure has happened.. Repetition, truly is a habit and by association, the results of it are as well.
