How do you know if you are stupid?
Like, I could never create movies or art, I could never write, because I have no way of knowing if everyone is thinking I am an incompetant moron.

And it's not just performance. I don't know if I'd recognize my twin if I came across him in the street. I have no confidence that my perception of my physical self is accurate. I don't know how I sound when I talk, I don't know how other people percieve me at all.

and I actually prefer to be ignorant in may ways. I guess I fear that if I see the truth it will make me suicidal. literally.

And I see folks like Kevin who are putting their art and ideas out there, on the line, because they seemingly believe in their selves.

do I not believe in myself because there is nothing to believe in?

does anyone else struggle with this?
