How do you eradicate chronic self-doubt?
This self doubt bums me out for you. On some level I have it too and I blame that on what I’ve learned as a woman about being a woman. But you asked a curious question about how this doubt serves you. I love your answer, to surprise yourself. But I think doubt serves also to make sure your work is great. Doubt propels you to work HARD. Doubt is a high price, but it’s worked for you. Your work is great.
What makes you think you can teach? Well, maybe the fact that I’d only LOVE to take one of your classes because I know I’d learn so much? Xoxc
“Plenty of evidence to suggest…” I always have to back to the evidence! Crazy making!
I was just thinking about all of this myself. I've been thinking, what right do I have to write publicly ever, at all? Am I not simply a laughing stock, ridiculous? Have been forcing myself to do it every day anyway but it's hard.
