When we face failure, we go through these 4 phases
1. Shock - We cant avoid it
2. Denial - we dont believe that it really happened
3. Rationalization - We give reasons for our mistakes to make ourselves feel good
4. Acceptance - We truely accept the reality and live with it.
Most of us dont reach this 4th stage at all, cause we all want to live life how we want it to be. Not adjusting to how it is. The real trick is to accept the fact and live with it. You will be the happiest and successful person on this EARTH. Keep yourself busy and motivated. Do things which u have never done before so that you need to concentrate on it. Travel to different places. Meet new people. Do things which makes you happy.
