“Can you do it?”
“Are you sure about this?”
“You should try something else”
“You tried and failed already, just give up now maybe”
The kind of statements and questions one hears when trying something,
Especially something new.
Fueled by the words of people around,
And probably our own past experiences too.
Making us doubt ourselves.
Yes, that’s what being discouraged is.
The best solution is to trudge on nonetheless,
With the intention
To prove to yourself more than anyone else that you can do it.
With the motivation
To become better than you were before you started off.
With the intent
To learn and grow rather than the end result of success or glory.
