Definitely a friend. You have to fail sometimes in order to succeed. It depends on how you take failure. My failures strengthen me and help me know what I need to do better which can lead me to success. Success doesn't come easily and you can't expect for it to come without a couple of downfalls. That's just life.

for me its good if it shifts your direction...its good when it causes you to change how youre doing things..its also good when it causes you to be humble and changes your attitude and strive harder......

but when we forget to look at the positive results of failure, we allow failure to control us..

its in control when it immobilizes us from trying something...its in control when it causes you to become discouraged, angry, and upset......its also in control when it makes us doupt our worth.....


how about you is is your foe or friend??


To be honest, i don't really see Failure as a friend, more of a.......Judge or a nasty critics that slaps the sense or truth into someone.

I consider it a foe, but I fail at countless things I do.... So I guess you can say both.

I would say it's both a friend and a foe..It's a friend because I tried to become a better person with each failure but sometimes failure gets over me and I start crumpling..Keeps thinking about it and started struggling with it,even afraid to do things that I already failed in before,so it's like preventing me from becoming a better person...Perharps,I should let go of those traumatic memories><"

It's not really failure that people should focus on but more on their outlook on failure. It's how you perceive your own failure that will determine whether it became your friend (changed you in a good way) or your foe (changed you in a bad way). It's basically all up to you on how you will act upon your failure because in the end, failure will always be your friend and your foe for change is something you can act upon but time will be the judge as to whether your change was good or bad for you.

For the record, failure is my friend.

Failure is a friend. It's like one of those really annoying friends that always tells you the truth even when it hurts but you know you've got to have them because you can't progress if you don't know the truth and you can't improve if you don't know what to improve on. Success is one of those friends that always flatter you and tell you how great you are so you've got to have them too for when failure makes you cry with it's brutal honesty.

So what I mean is you need failure and success in your life.

What if you fail at important things? What if you fail as a parent and your children end up messed up? What if you risk your life and you fail and die? I don't know why anyone would think that failure is a good thing by merely hearing those generalized sayings about how "failure teaches you or that each failure is one more step to success bla bla". Failure is bad no matter how you look at it and is definitely worse than success. You try to gain something out of the situation(like learning something from your mistakes) in spite of having failed. But you don't want to fail. What you get out of it is a consolation prize.
