Failure is our greatest ally in life. What defines us is how well we rise after falling. Sometimes in life, when you reach the point of failing, you actually feel like giving up; failure slaps you so hard that you feel depressed, devastated, and even suicidal. All you wish to do is lie on your bed, not face the world, and stay locked up in your room forever.

To you, happiness and success seem to be the biggest lies of the world. Your confidence sinks and the world crashes down. Isn’t it? Well, the good thing is you are not alone; we all go through days like this. I know that talking about failure is easy, but facing one is not everyone’s cup of tea, but then the difference lies between those who get consumed by the failure and those who make it through the struggle stronger and better.
