I realized recently that I’m the tiniest bit afraid to fail even if I’m all by myself. This startled me to realize. What a waste?! What am I preventing myself from doing? I wonder if this has manifested itself partially as a result of working from home in isolation. After all, even when I’m all by myself working each day, I’m still putting myself out there with my work risking failure. Does this mental state then bleed into everything I do alone? I’m not sure but I’ve decided I need to start succeeding at failing more often. I wish I was kidding but I actually wrote on my to do list on my phone “Fail more”. It took longer than I want to admit for me to realize what I had done.
