Keep in mind that the answer is not “I am not able to do this”, but “I am not able to do this YET”. So, go back to the start of your life’s project: really get to know yourself and stay open minded.

I just found out that I’m due to restart work in a few weeks’ time and this was good news for me, I was actually happy for a second.
