Hi Kenneth, please don't feel like a failure! Baking, just like any craft, involves a fair amount of learning from your mistakes, but we want to try to help you avoid common pitfalls whenever we can! It sounds like your dough might have been a little over-proofed if it fell during the second rise. This blog on desired dough temperature can be helpful when it comes to controlling the rate of  your rise and guarding against over-proofing. If you're able to give our Baker's Hotline a call at 855-371-2253, we'd love to help you troubleshoot further, and make sure that your next bread making adventure is a much better experience!
