I’m still trying hard to be perfect even though I know I don’t have to. 

It’s a waste of time and plus, it blocks my creative output. 

I worry about how I’m going to sound and if people are going to like what I post or not.

And that hinders my ability to create. There are many pieces I want to write but I tell myself that I’m “not ready” or that it “sounds stupid”. 

I sometimes forget about the main objective and that’s to do it for myself. 

Write about the shit I want to write about and work on the stuff I want to work on. 

Don’t do it for the views, notoriety, and other people’s acceptance because I’ll be chasing that for the rest of my life. 


And also a shameless plug - I started my own webstore selling some of the stickers I’ve created in the past. Please check it out as any orders will go towards growing this newsletter and my podcast.
