I recently applied for, and failed to get into, a speech therapy course that I am very interested in pursuing. Obviously, I am very disappointed, and perhaps a little upset with myself. Or maybe, I am upset with the lecturers who interviewed me, for not thinking that I am “good enough” to be accepted into the course.

And I have been fixated with the idea of “good enough”. Where does “good enough” end and “enough is enough” begin? For every thing I do, I could have done it better. So is it about following the perception of an ideal, whatever that may be? Or is it about performing to the best of my ability? And in such a case, who determines or defines what is my “best”?

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
