Survey: Feelings of failure common in Estonia and Finland ({{commentsTotal}})


Emotional well-being requires people to be satisfied with themselves and not feel like a failure. People who for some reason fail to take pride in themselves and their achievements run the risk of experiencing distress and depression.

The results of the European Social Survey 2012 show that it's the Finns, especially the women, and Estonians who are most like to say they have failed in life.

Whereas there is no statistical difference between the said feeling among Estonian males and females, women in general, and especially in the Scandinavian countries, struggle with self-worth somewhat more than men do.
