Have you ever compared to yourself to other sewists, or perhaps felt self-conscious about something you made or your technical skills? I suffer from those emotions from time to time, and in this video, I address five things I feel self-conscious about.
I recorded this video this morning, and as you can probably tell, I’m nursing a cold—my voice gets really low-pitched when I do. And I wasn’t feeling any of my planned video topics this weekend since I always get kinda gloomy and low-energy when I’m ill, go figure! But then this topic idea came to me last night as I was scrolling through my Instagram sewing feed and was reminded of how easy it can be to compare oneself to others. So I felt this good be a good topic for sewing video, and perhaps something that we don’t always talk about that much?
Can you relate to those feelings? And what is your approach to dealing with it?
