Things you don't mind being bad at

I think it’s nice when you find things you don’t mind being rubbish at.

I have a terrible sense of direction but it doesn’t bother me. Once I’m about 3 streets away from where I live I’m lost pretty easily and just stop paying attention to my surroundings. My friends know to do all the navigating if we’re going for a long walk somewhere so that’s ok!

Anything you are bad at that you’ve made peace with?

Guitar. Had one since I was like 14 and used to have lessons but I’m just not good at it and that’s ok cause I’m happy enough just making little songs up out of the few chords I can play and learning Taylor Swift songs for my wife to sing along to.

Also flirting.

Sex. Frankly if my partner wants to be sexually satisfied, that’s really on them for making such a poor judgment call on me.

Drawing. My drawing skills haven’t improved since I was 11. Don’t mind it though.

I’m mediocre (at best) at almost everything I do and have long since accepted that.

Yeah this. For me, not you.

Sports, I’m not very athletic but it’s alright, I can swim and ride a bike so that’s enough for me

I really wish I could honestly say sports but I do live in fear of embarrassing myself really badly at ten pin bowling. Not that I want to go bowling. Or am likely to be made to. But if it comes up then it’s going to be horrendous.

bowling’s easy to bluff though just do a posy run up and then it’s funny when you roll it into the gutter every time

Think I’ll just ask for one of those slide things they give little kids. Say I’m prone to tendonitis in my wrists (which is at least true).

Whistling. Never been able to do it, fine with that

Most stuff. Think I have quite a low threshold for what gives me a feeling of achievement

Maths. Can just use the calculator on my phone now so it’s fine.

Find scrabble really good for this because I’m genuinely chuffed to get any words even if I end up coming last

Wish I was like this, I am normally laid back but hate losing in games so much and feel great the rest of the day if I win

Think I hate being bad at all the stuff I’m bad at, which is why I don’t do much anything.
