If you walk away from a great job that isn't serving your wellbeing, you haven't walked away from success, but towards it.
I think success is measured in self-respect, and not money or status.
If your relationship doesn't work out, you might think of it has not having succeeded. But what about viewing it as a chance to find a better match?
Wouldn't that be a bigger success than settling?
If your success is measured in external validation and results, I'd challenge that you're trying to fill a siv with water.
What have you succeeded at that compliments your character, where you've showed courageous vulnerability, taken a chance, said no to things that hurts your emotional well-being, and yes to things that scare you - but in a good way?
Where have you achieved that's invisible to others?
When have you followed a dream, a passion, a purpose - despite the critics?
When was the last time you woke up feeling happy?
That's how I'd measure success.
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
