Random thought: I used to be able to keep being inspired by people better than me in <field X>.

Nowadays I'm in a constant switch between "wow, they are/their work is awesome!" and "they're too good, i can't compete i should just give up" and frankly it's tiring.


Also as a bonus I seem to have forgot that yes, to be sorta good at something I need to suck at it first. So instead I try new things and get discouraged when I'm not decent at it immediately.
