Me Too

I am so bad about dropping something once I realize I am not perfect at it right away.

Sewing, cooking, scrapbooking, writing are all things I've picked up and become discouraged after starting. I know it takes practice, but it's so hard for me to keep going when I constantly have to remove stitching, throw away a less than stellar meal, be disappointed with my meager attempts at scrapbooking, and stare at a blank computer screen because I just can't find the first few words.

Sounds like you need just a little motivation. Maybe if someone tells you that you're good at something, you will go along with it.

that's kinda my thing also. you name it - crafts (making accessories, clothes etc), playing the guitar, writing a novel. I also join different groups. At first, i'm really enthusiastic about it then just after a few weeks or months, i lose interest in it. Especially so when i feel that i'm not great at it - that i'm just a mediocre. it really frustrates me.. ...just like what you wrote, it takes practice... but too bad for me also, i have a short attention span, so, it just ends like that =) i think patience is the key - a lot of it,, and determination. i hope you find something that you can really focus on and have fun while doing so.. =) my friend told me that instead of wasting my time complaining about how lame i am in doing things, why not use my time improving myself in doing it... i guess we can both use that advice.. =)
