My Dad always says "Einstien was never a great cricketer" You'll find what you're good at. There are new jobs and careers invented all the time. Imagine explaining PR to a coal miner in the fifties. You'll find your place eventually, but you've got to work for it.
: 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?
