Permission to Suck

For a few months I’ve been seeing a therapist again. She lets me show up at her office, vomit out some words about how I feel like a failure, then she tells me that I’ll be okay, and then I leave. We do that every few weeks.

One of the best things she’s said to me is this: it’s okay to suck at things. There are things I’m trying to do, and if they go poorly that doesn’t make me any worse at being me.

I drew this. It sucks. And that’s okay.

Once I’m allowed to suck, that means I’m also allowed to stress a little less about it.

Do what you can when you can. Try to grow. Worrying just stops you from learning.
