A brief guide on how to miss opportunities

Because its impossible
To never miss one
And its not the most useful thing
To beat yourself up
For doing so.
Hence a quick guide is needed:
Don’t brush over the opportunity missed-
Sit with it for long enough
To appreciate what’s you’ve lost
But don’t sit too long
Lest you start to think
That the chance you missed
Is the last you’ll ever get.
You are more than the sum total
Of your accomplishments or lack of them
More than the approval of others or even your own estimates
Of yourself.
You are not less of a person
For having missed a chance.

This is not the end.
