I’m less afraid to cook now
I’ve always been terrified to mess up when I had to cook.
Is it because my mom is such a great cooker that I feel like whatever I cook it won’t taste as good as her?
I don’t really know for sure.
All I know is that I’ve avoided as much as I could to cook because I was afraid of messing up.
And whenever I had to, I would spend lots of time reading and watching the same recipe to make sure I wouldn’t mess up.
What I’ve learned is it doesn’t matter how much you prepare yourself for something you will eventually fail.
But you know what?
That’s ok because I got to learn from my failures and over time I got to improve my cooking skills.
There are certainly better cookers than me and that’s ok. I’m not in competition with anyone but myself.
All I want is to be able to cook freely without that pressure I used to put on my shoulders.
I wanna try new recipes and try again if I fail.
