What’s failure anyways

What’s failure anyways?

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, failure is “a situation in which someone or something does not succeed”, based on that, this definition leaves us with three conclusions:

✓ Failure can happen to anyone

✓ Failure can happen to something (not just someone)

and… failure depends strictly on success? *record scratch sound*

First off, we must acknowledge that “failure” (like a ton of other words) is just that – a concept accepted and agreed upon by the social imaginary to describe abstract feelings, situations, and events, based on definitions that constantly change throughout time, social and cultural context.

That being said, we can say that failure is relative. For some, it’s a terrible, epic mistake, for others, it’s a clean slate and fresh start. Some take failure seriously, while others take a more easygoing approach.
