Fear and Doubt are both partners and enemies of the creative

I’m a terrible person for doubting myself. At work, I do this a lot, and it’s one of my worst habits. I actually think it stems from having a lot of self-doubts growing up and having a parent that didn’t know how to accept whatever I did as good enough. Not that I am here to blame my past or my parentage, but it’s gotta come from somewhere, right? I wasn’t born with self-doubt, it is something that developed as I evolved and grew within my environment, and my childhood was not the best. Surely not the worst, but a long way from being ideal.
