Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.
There is no inherent shame in failure, in not knowing, or in being wrong, and we shouldn't actively shame others for it.
Get back up, learn something new, and try again.
@noelle i'm going to limit my reply to a very loud MODERN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS ARE ****SHIT**** and leave it there
@noelle ignorance is the first step toward knowledge
Indeed. If anything is shameful, it's not learning from the mistake.
@noelle how does one learn if not from failure?
I would agree with you, but here in Sweden it´s gotten nearly the other way around. It seems like people are proud of not knowing anything.
