Sometimes we are far too hard on ourselves. It’s good to reach for the stars, but sometimes we see their continued distance and feel like failures even though we may be standing on mountaintops. Sometimes, we just need an outside perspective and a gentle reminder from our loved ones.

A Plus decided to conduct a social experiment where they asked participants to rate their success on a scale of 1 to 10. Some of them might seem fair, and others are definitely way too hard on themselves. They give their reasons why they feel this way, and it’s probably relatable for many. But seeing how their loved ones rate their success, is something some of us might need in our lives right now.
