Sometimes a simple reframe is all that is necessary in some situations.
When I find myself saying “I’m not good at this” I might try “What am I missing?” Sometimes giving my brain a different path to solve the same problem is how I’m able to get to a solution.
One of the kindest things I can say to myself when I feel I have so much to learn is “I’m on the right track.” As my husband likes to remind me, learning something new is always inherently stressful… so I keep both things in mind when taking on something new.
You get the idea, right?
