In brief: Psychotherapy Helps

Feelings of being a failure are not pleasant.
Depression, low self-esteem, history of physical and/or emotional abuse, lack of education, overly critical family members and peers and self-deprecation can lead to the feelings of failure. Treatment that can help one overcome these feelings of failure starts with a good psych eval. Treatment options include psychotherapy and medications. See pmd.

In brief: Do you believe that?

How you feel, what you think and what you do are distinct and separate things.
What makes you feel a failure? Is it true? Can you change it? Don't waste time and energy denying or judging your feelings.The important thing is what will you do about them. Do you keep trying things that don't work hoping they will work the next time? Counseling can help you change all that. Failureonly happens when y.
