Hi, internet void,
(should I change the name of my blog to hi internet void?) But I fucked up at work again and it really hit my self-esteem. My mistakes at one of my jobs tend to be really stupid and it’s hard for me to feel smart and like a decent good enough person when I fuck up consistently at work. I feel so worthless when I let my team down especially because my boss has always believed in me even though I feel as though I’ve given her so many reasons not too. I always try to do better and I always fail sooner or later and then any self-love or self-esteem that I’ve been working up is completely eviscerated.
Today on the phone with my boss I choked up cause I felt so ashamed to be letting her down again. I was explaining that the problem was, in fact, me and a mistake I had made and she basically told me to do better and not make stupid mistakes, that she doesn’t want people to think I’m stupid cause I’m not. But honestly lately I’ve been feeling like I might be. Which is a weird thing to contemplate because it’s not something you can ask your friends without them totally denying it (like if you ask them if your boyfriend’s ex is hotter than you), they’ll never answer you honestly. So it’s really up to my stupid brain to decide whether I’m stupid or not (should that brain even be trusted? with important decisions?). And then what if I decide that I am? Then what? Can you even come to terms with that?
I am the weak link at one of my jobs and I don’t know how to keep from making these stupid mistakes and I feel so horrible for making my team look bad and keep covering my ass. Anyways that’s all for now… I have a team call in an hour and I am so dreading it.
your idiotic suffering internet friend
