Thanks for the story, and I love the sincere and personal approach to a not so glamorous topic. We all fail so many times in life, and it takes lots of practice to get back up again.

"especially on social media when we're constantly surrounded by brilliant people doing amazing things"

What seems brilliant at first is often a meticulously staged event whose sole purpose is boasting. There are brilliant people everywhere, even on social media. The problem with social media is false portrayal of achievement and personally; the prevailing tendency to create a false perception of everybody being successful and impeccable has become a norm.

That is, for the lack of a better word, an utter hokum.

Thank You for your story.
