This is true in a variety of ways. One of the current ways is the fact that I am very close to hitting 1000 views on my blog this month and I suddenly have no desire to write anything. I’ve never hit 1000 view in a month. All I need to do is average 14 views a day for the rest of the month and I’m there. This is not one of those blogs that gets 14 views in a day with no new post. I’m never going to be that blog that gets random visitors. There is no good reason for anyone to ever click on my blog, especially when there is no new post. When I got close to my milestone my mind went blank and I had no idea what to write. I think my brain is rebelling against my small success.
I’m my own worst enemy in a variety of other ways. I’ve mentioned before how I pretend like I think everyone likes me, but deep down I’ve convinced myself that even the people I think are my friends don’t like me. I’m just a random cranky old fat man. Why would anyone want to be my friend?
When I’m looking at job openings I convince myself that I’m not qualified for many of the jobs and deep down I’m afraid to leave because I’m afraid I would fail.
I talk about jumping and finding what I’m meant to do, but I’m afraid of that first step.
I never attempt to write more than a stream of consciousness post I can write in 15-20 minutes because I’m don’t think I’m good enough to write something “real”.
I’m my own worst enemy by never thinking I’m good enough.
I’m not sure how I can change that.
