someone: you were pretty good at that thing, why’d you stop doing it?
me internally: I get extremely anxious when I think about doing something I might possibly succeed at because I base my self-worth on my achievements and other people’s approval, I am afraid because I know I will never be able to live up to my own unrealistic expectations, I hate making mistakes because they make me feel worthless, I take negative feedback too personally, I feel immense guilt over not doing things that I’ve been avoiding which just makes me avoid them more, I feel ashamed and inadequate due to how difficult it is for me to stay committed to anything, I’m worried that I’ll just end up disappointing myself and the entire world, and I am convinced that if I failed I would literally die.
me externally: idk i guess i’ve just been kinda busy lol
