I feel like most of the things I make aren’t good enough to release. It’s really hard to tune out those feelings, but I think over time I come to remember that it’s a process. Getting a little better each time is the only thing I try to focus on, everything else is just noise

Good enough for what?

For your friends and family?

For colleagues?

For other strangers online?

For yourself?

When you can answer that question honestly, you can start the healing.
