It’s true. Every day I try to do my very best, but I often fail and sometimes I say or do the wrong thing. I make mistakes. Sometimes they are small and no one notices and sometimes someone does, and they tell me. It is hard not to be defensive or embarrassed.
One of the things I am working on is the idea that we all are growing and much of growth comes from times of discomfort. No one really knows what they are doing all the time and most people learn by doing things.
I have found that some of the very best things in my life have come from starting things that really felt hard at first. I often feel very uncomfortable in times of adjustment and transition. It’s also hard to say “I am new at this” or “I need help”. It’s tough feeling like you aren’t that great at something, but the only way to get better is to keep doing it and it’s okay to not always know how.
I feel like I am in that place with many parts of my life right now and it can be a hard place to feel confident in your own skin. If you feel like this too, you are not alone. Everyone starts somewhere and starting itself is a huge accomplishment, even if you don’t exactly know where you are headed yet. <3
