Because I have made terrible mistakes.
Because I was clueless when I made those mistakes.
Because I never knew if life would ever get better again.
Because those make me real – that I am not a know-it-all guy, rather someone who is work in progress.
Because we all are shaped more by what we thought would work out and it tanked badly – and gave us shock instead of surprises.

I share my failures, so that you get to reflect on your own, and do not get deluded that “successful” people don’t have any.
