What’s Worse?

What’s worse: Letting others down, or letting yourself down? We celebrate in public. But when we fail…we go home.

    Good question. Letting others down tends to lead me to beat myself up for weeks. But, it’s usually because I had overestimated my own ability…and then fell on my face.
    And then there’s that little matter of running for home to hide and lick my (self-inflicted) wounds.

    Yep. “Where you hide when you fail” is at least part of what defines “home,” I think.


  3. I think when we let ourselves down we treat ourselves far worse than anyone would. On the other hand if we don’t give a fig about it, then you’re probably oblivious and wouldn’t care anyway.

    John, indeed, and I’m sure both of the former include letting God down.
