Phew. I hold myself back from so much. I let my fears of failure, mediocrity, and potential negative feedback inhibit not only the work I put out in the world, but the work I create and even the amount of energy I have to create at all.
I hold myself back from getting stronger because I’m afraid of food. I’ve held myself back from happiness out of fear of embarrassment.
Sometimes, though, I do just get stuck. But nine times out of 10 the only thing I’m stuck in is a vat of excuses. (You know how we all thought quicksand was going to be a bigger problem? It was a metaphor for self-doubt.)
I’m ready to stop caring so much about failing that I never try. And I’m really starting to care less about everybody else’s opinions and more about my own. So things feel pretty promising. 🤞🏻🤞🏻
