Have you ever fallen off a horse before? How about three times in one hour?!
Two years ago when I was in a jumping lesson with a previous trainer, I fell off my horse three times in one hour. Let me tell you, by the third time, my confidence was completely gone and it took a while for it to come back.
In life, when we don’t feel good about ourselves, we can develop a lack of confidence and self-worth. We can feel like the whole world is on our shoulders and nothing will ever get better or resolve itself. When we fail or make mistakes, our whole mindset can revolve around those mistakes or regrets and then that makes us feel powerless. Feeling powerless can make us feel vulnerable or useless.
