Very true. This is how I have felt after a few mistakes made lately. I have had seven fish die in the last month and a half due to improper cycling in my tank. A new betta a got less than a week died right after bringing him home.
It's very frustrating and makes you feel like a failure, but you are not! I have learned that raising fish has a lot of trial and error in it. I've made a lot of errors so far but I am learning what I should and should not do.
My mom has gotten back into fish again because of me. So she is going to help me with my new tank.
