Becoming a designer…or not

It’s not easy.

You know that feeling when you have decided you want to start something new and you are excited and you think about it all the time and you are like “yes! I can do it”
And then you dive into it and you are still excited and enthusiastic and you think “yes! I’m starting to learn about this thing, it’s so cool” and the further you proceed in your learning process the more you start to feel “oh man, what have I gotten myself into? I’m never going to make it.”

Yup, that’s where I am now. I felt so excited about learning more about web design, UI/UX design and it’s not something completely new to me. I have been building websites since forever, but I was more involved in the technical aspects, not the front view, the design.

I feel overwhelmed and I doubt and I question myself. Will I be able to make it? The motivational answer is “Yes, of course, don’t give up”

The real question is…”what was I thinking?”

But I’m not ready to give up yet.

Do you relate? Have you felt the same?
