In Batman Begins, a young Bruce Wayne falls down a well and he fears the bats inside it. His father is lowered down into the well and brings his son up to safety. As they are walking into Wayne Manor, Alfred says that he took quite a fall. His dad is carrying Bruce and says, “Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.”
His dad sees this as an opportunity for Bruce to learn how to pick himself up and it is such a great lesson. The truth is, we are all fall at times. We struggle with addictions, unhealthy thought patterns and memories that haunt us. These things happen so we can learn how to navigate through them and get back onto our feet.
