Now i am stressed and much worried. How to get relief from that. Please guide me..

Hi Zia,

Making a mistake three times is not necessarily a problem, but if it starts to stress you it may be the case that you using the event to put yourself down. In other word you may be suffering from a low self-esteem that has little to do with the mistakes you made.

This may be due to a physical disorder called hypoglycemia (

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (

It may be an idea to read:

Treatment of a Low Self Esteem

Please let me know whether this helped or not, because it is difficult to know without a personal,interview, what is really going on.
