@fasterthanlime You write beautifully. That aside, I think it's important for us to discuss the things we struggle with. There's a tendency on the internet to only show your best side, then that contributes to this kind of false narrative of people seemingly doing a million things effortlessly while others look on and struggle and wonder where they're going wrong. It's important to be honest that we struggle, because of solidarity. <3

@fasterthanlime thank you for this. I think a lot of us perfectionists, specially who program, have to go through this at least once. I had a similar experience, but contrary to you, at the end of a year, I failed to deliver. I don't know if that makes things easier or harder tbh (failing allowed me to really take my distance and reflect -- my client was really unhappy though!). I think the job you've been putting out is awesome, you've been and are an inspiration. Kudos!

@fasterthanlime I’m glad to know my favorite app is written by a human!
