I think too many people still don’t believe in themselves and their talents and I think that stems from past hurts and childhood trauma. When you are growing up and constantly being told you are stupid or no good or a loser, doesn’t matter how fantastic your work is, you will never believe that it is.
That’s a tough demon to battle. Trust me. I know. Took me almost 53 yrs and I still battle the self doubt demon every now and then. It takes a shit ton of courage. I’m not sure if we’re cowards but I’ll speak for myself here, I’m trying dammit! 😁 I definitely more out there than I used to be!
