It is okay to fall...

"Yes, my heart’s dear one, Jesus, is here with His cross. Since you are
one of His favorites, he wants to make you into His likeness; why be
afraid that you will not have the strength to carry this cross without a
struggle?
On the way to Calvary, Jesus did indeed fall three times and you, poor
little child, would like to be different from your spouse, would rather not
fall a hundred times if necessary to prove your love to Him by
getting back up with even more strength than before your fall!"
— St. Therese of Lisieux, Meditations with the Little Flower, p. 87
