    Same, Half the time I think I bite off more than I can chew and intimidation sets in after the excitement drops.

      You might have luck with some of that intimidation with just repetition/experience. Like I hardly get scared away from metalwork anymore because I’ve been doing a ton of it this year, but I’m still really slow at and kinda scared of painting.

      The big killer for me is when anything starts going better then expected, and now I’m suddenly more worried about ruining it than I am excited/confident to finish it. I try to remind myself as often as possible that I stand to learn more from one failure than I could from ten successes.

      Anywho I’m definitely rambling now, sorry for that lol

      I get that with learning programming and without my friend pushing me I get worried that I can’t learn and just kind of stop trying.
