To maintain an openness and a mind centered in calm abiding in one’s daily living can really steady a person when things appear to be going wrong.
It takes courage and determination to cultivate one’s life according to The Dharma, and past experiences and poor adaptability, learned and ingrained by habits and conforming, lead one to lose a footing here and there.
One should never feel like a failure, and never chastise yourself, because we are all precious humans, after all. Just pick yourself up, gather your courage in, and keep on keeping on The Path.
We are unfolding at the correct time, place and environment. Be brave, be brave, be brave.
