Today I learnt that I blur the line between what I don't think I can do and what I do by ignoring my feelings on the matter and just getting the unplesentness the hell over with.

It just dawned on me today when a friend raised serious concerns with the lecturer about an upcoming presentation we have to do in front of the group. She has social phobias like me, and its only just from that I realised that my policy of just doing my best and ignoring any fears I might have means that I have no idea where my limits are and no clue what what happen if I went over them.

Good for you! :thumleft: Too many people limit themselves unnecessarily by looking at a task and saying "That's too hard" or "I can't do that". It's good that you're able to just go ahead and do things without psyching yourself out of being able to do them.

I've always been the sort of person who says "I won't know if I can do it or not until I try it." :wink:

I learned that sometimes cacti shrivel up after you repot them, but they recover in a month or two if you let them sit out of direct sunlight and don't water them too much.

I have learned that when some people wreck their computer they look for scapegoats rather than acknowledge that they were the cause of the problem and learn from their own screw-up.
