So my partner told me today (after a year of choking down my food, apparently, my words, not his) that he doesn’t like my cooking.
I’ve always thought I was a decent cook.
Now I’m second guessing myself on everything. I’ve been feeling down lately anyway, but I’ve taken it to an extreme in my mind, what if I’m not good at ANYTHING??? He simply replied, “then you’ll have to put work into the things you want to be good at,” which sounds fair I guess, but I do feel like I’ve already put some effort in cooking, and I’d I still suck at it what does that mean???
Honestly I already feel like I kinda suck at life in general (partly bc of my mental illness, and beyond that I am often challenged by things that seem to come easily for “most” people) and now I discover that I’m not good at something I thought I did ok.
I’d love to get a saner or more loving perspective on this!
