The biggest issue I dealt with as Zetaman was online critics. Because I was doing something completely out of my comfort zone, I gave weight to critics and trolls. I thought they saw the flaws in what I was doing. I believed they were holding me accountable. In truth, I never trusted myself. The lack of self-trust has crippled me in so many ways. It is tough because I’m scared of being arrogant. Self-trust is not arrogant. Self-trust is knowing that what I am doing is the right thing because I am the authority of what is going on in my life. Self-trust is believing that I am capable of handing the situation I am in.
I let A LOT of people erode what little self-trust I have. I’m working hard on developing my inner sense of self-trust. I have to… it is a part of self-care and being an adult.
