I embrace failure, I always have done.
It doesn’t make it any easier to take though as I am human and don’t like failure, it’s not something I purposefully go out to do. There is a difference.
The realisation that my body was worn out from the past 21 years of craziness was hard to take. In my head I am still an immortal 18 year old that can achieve anything I put my mind to.
