I’ve been thinking about how there are so many things I want to do and time is so finite. In pre-covid times, I used to get really down on myself about that, because it felt like everyone else was able to be at every event and know everyone and do everything, and I just wasn’t. That went away during the pandemic a little, but then there were so many virtual events to go to and discord servers to be in that I once again felt overwhelmed and inadequate. I’m trying to do what I can to focus my finite time and energy on the things that are most important to me, and accept that I won’t ever be able to do everything I want to do at once. I’m also trying not to compare myself to others because that’s not fair or useful to anyone.
