I wanna share this because I think the IH community could benefit from celebrating our failures once in a while. Failures and mistakes are unavoidable and can be great learning opportunities.
I have an app for people looking to improve their mental health, Bold CBT. Users complete exercises and write private journal entries. I recently shipped a bug that deleted all of one user's entries :( . That user messaged me to let me know how upset they were. I felt terrible.
However! That user did also say that they would continue using the app because it helps them so much. So while I feel horrible that the user lost their entries, I'm warmed that my product is good enough that the impacted user would continue using the app. Just gotta keep pushing on.
