Today I’m participating in a blogging challenge organized by Ez of Creature Comforts blog. It’s inspired by this post, by Jess Constable, and since I am all about some honesty on this blog, of course I wanted to join in!
Here we go:
1. I am terrible at listening. It is such a struggle to turn off my inner monologue and focus on what others are saying. Not always, but often. I hate that about myself.
2. I don’t feel like I know what I’m doing half the time. The problem with freelancing is that to an extent, you are supposed to be all things to all people. Most people recommend that you don’t start out freelancing, and I get that. Almost a year later, there’s still so much I need to learn. Many of my projects have been first-time learning experiences. I make mistakes in every project. Most of my mistakes only negatively affect me, but sometimes I wish I could feel as confident as I sometimes act.
3. I get really jealous. A simple google search can turn up hundreds of people who are doing what I want to do, except 1 million times better than me. I sound awful, but sometimes it’s hard to be happy for people who appear to have a never-ending string of successes/amazing projects. Logically, I know they are working and struggling behind the scenes. Sometimes I’m not a very logical person.
4. I hate taking showers. I know. I’m so gross. But sometimes I put it off for way longer than is socially acceptable.
Okay, now it’s your turn. Do you have things you’re afraid to put out there? Let me know in the comments, so I won’t be the only one!
