Bud if I can advise here.
Don't listen to anyone, don't follow one person's advice that has been given. - Read them all, digest them all, but don't anchor to one, you need to find your own answer, we don't have it.
But rather sit back, and think what could you have done, or what you can do to improve. If your taught fail atleast you learnt how not to do it, and that's step 1 to learning how to do something.
*We're all sitting on the sidelines speculating and it's causing alot of unnecessary noise, you need to sit in the quite and think😎
