unrealize it and banish it from your brain
I keep lowering the bar until I am good enough, at the same time giving fewer fucks every day.
It’s always the opposite, they are not good enough for you
Haven’t happened yet.
i keep doing it until i am good enough works every time
Realize that your best is all you can do, and the people you think have their shit together have the same self-doubt and imposter syndrome
Not good enough for what / in what?
Have a month of depression and figure out why I’m not good enough, then work to change it
Take a shower and give it another go
I adjust my goals and ambitions.
But yeah unfortunately I’m never going to make it in the NBA.
I tell myself that it doesn’t dictate my worth or how fulfilling my life can be. Not everyone is gonna be an extraordinary person who’s able to live up to everyone’s expectations, and that’s fine.
What a load off my mind. I guess I dont have to worry about competing and can just enjoy myself now
This is one of life’s biggest lies and it tries to tell it to us all. The reality is that no-one is good enough if perfection is what we compare ourselves to.
It becomes easier when you realize there’s literally nothing that can be done about it
Depends on what I am not good enough for.
If it is something I need, I try to be better, or find a way to change my situation that I don’t need it anymore.
If it is something I want, I decide whether it is worth the effort to improve, and if not, I don’t want it anymore.
If it is something I neither want or need, I don’t give a shit.
In what sense?
Try not to compare yourself to other people. Everyone is at a different stage in life, whether they are the same age or not. Comparing yourself will bring you nothing but shame and discouragement.
You are a life-long learner. No matter how good you are at something; how smart, talented, etc.: there will always be something else for you to learn.
Learning self-love and confidence is part of that. Hope you start treating yourself more kindly.
