- We struggle to try again because of perfectionism, idealism, and exhaustion.
- We often treat our falls as final and our failures as fatal.

- Although a good friend cannot undo our mistakes, they can walk alongside us as we try to do better next time.
- We don’t have to commit to trying again forever but only for today.

- Become comfortable with the uncomfortable phrase, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”
