I read this somewhere…
“The human condition is to transition between moments of confidence and confusion.”
I have to say, I found this a great relief.
The idea that it is normal to transition (potentially in an instant) from: “Hey…I really know what I’m doing!” to: “OMG, …how did I get here?” was completely freeing for me.
Labeling it the “human condition” makes it noble.
Owning it makes me human.
