Hey guys, this is actually my first time writing an article so I'm not sure how this would go.

So as you can see, the title is "It's okay to fail". This is a pretty personal topic for me since I hate failure and I'm also really scared of it. Normally I'm always successful in what I do whether if its sports, studies or the relationships that I have.

But recently, I got a two in my communication studies (okay here's a little backstory, I'm from Trinidad where we have an exam called CAPE which is similar to the British A-levels and communication studies is compulsory in the first year and caribbean studies is compulsory in the second). I'm aware that a two isn't bad because I passed the exam but the thing about is that I was aiming for a distinction because my country awards national scholarships to the people with pretty high scores (all distinctions basically)

So i was pretty sad about it for a while. My mom congratulated me and told me that I tried my best and still loves me and all that jazz whereas my dad told me I could've done better which bummed me out.

So doing what any normal person would, I went on we heart it and started looking up depressing quotes whilst listening to sad music. This helped me cry all my frustrations out so I could attempt to turn over anew leaf.

I don;t know when, where or how but suddenly I felt a weight lifted my shoulders. I no longer feared failure. By me getting two I experienced it and since I don't wanna experience it again, I aspired to work twice as hard and to do over the exam and aim for a distinction. I know its gonna be hard to do over communication studies since I have like 14 other exams to write but I have a great support system which are my mom and friends and I just have to work and believe I would succeed.

So here's some quotes that helped me through my time:

So I hope you enjoyed this and I helped you so bye for now.
