    If you are a college student, you know the sinking feeling you get when you have received a bad grade. Whether you are logging in to look at Turnitin or Moodle, or you are given back your assignment in class, it can feel like not only is your work is a failure, but you are too. 

     Nobody likes to fail in life. When you were a child, and you fell off the bike you were attempting to ride without training wheels, you likely got upset. This miserable feeling carries on throughout your life. When you are a child, you might fail at trivial things, like losing a game of Uno. But, as you grow up, you feel like a failure when you do not get the job promotion or when everyone around you is in a happy relationship except for you.
