Dear mr. Gaiman, how do you cope with failure/making mistakes? I keep thinking that my mistakes are closely linked to my value as a person and therefore I am scared of doing anything in case i mees it up. Do you have any advice? Thanks for your time!
I keep making mistakes. I hope I learn from them. I hope I’ll keep making them until I die. They mean I’m out there doing something.
I just attended the best passion of the Christ play. As they were “nailing” Jesus to the cross the entire thing broke. No one knew what to do and it got quiet. Finally one of the guards on stage said “You get out of it this time Jesus”
we’ve got two champs teachers that are sisters and one of them is currently studying her ass off for her TC and the other already took it but she’s going to have to retake it bc she failed the teaching portion and one of my beloved dance moms said “if she failed the teaching portion, how do you guys learn from her” and i just said “i don’t even know but it usually involves lots of crying”
