A counselor once told me that the definition of narcissism is believing you’ll be amazing at something you’ve never done before.
I laughed and then wondered why he needed to tell me that.
I think he knew that I’m like you. I think I have to be good at something new. I expect and sometimes even demand proficiency at new things. And then I try them for the first time and I fail and I give up.
Give yourself some time to improve. Give yourself some time to get better. Admit that things might suck for a while and that’s OK.
You’re not done. You’re just starting. This is the beginning, not the end.
You’re still in beta and so am I.
