The Fall

I like to be that guy. I like to be the guy you can rely on. I like to be the guy who people have confidence in, who people look to.

I’m not good at leaning on others. I usually like to deal with life as it comes. When it rains, I hear the music and start dancing.

Except when it comes to letting others down. That just tears me up inside. I power though, but I don’t want to let my friends down. Sure, that may be one of my biggest weaknesses but I don’t know how to reconcile it.

I’d rather let it consume me than risk the fall.

How do you deal with disappointment in yourself or when you might let down someone who cares about you? How do you reconcile the potential of destroying the trust your friends have placed in you?

How do you stand tall when you feel like doubling over?

  1. I am only human with all the faults and problems that come with being human. I remember that I put my pants on one leg at a time. You, me and everyone is the same in this aspect. We all fail from time to time.

    A true friend is going to understand that you too are human. Yes it hurts to disappoint those we care about more than it hurts when we fall short of goals we set for ourselves.

    How to let this go I cannot say. You may need to come to a point that you are able to say to your friends, hey I tried but I failed or I screwed up or whatever. Being able to talk honestly about the situation is going to be the best route to take. A sincere apology when it is warranted will always help also.

    IMHO there is no simple answer to this other than remember that you are human.

  2. I agree with Mark Brian. We’re all human and we all do the best we can. And none of us is perfect. You keep trying. Sometimes, you succeed. Sometimes, you fail. When you succeed, you rejoice. When you fail, you forgive yourself. You look at what’s happened, learn your lessons, forgive yourself and go on. And the people that really love you will be there to go on with you.

  3. You are such a caring and amazing person… anyone who knows you already realizes this. Besides the fact we can’t help but be ‘human,’ you have nothing to be sorry or worried about.
