If you like feeling useful, it terrifies you to be labeled as useless.
But of course feeling useful helps maintain the delusion that your actions are the only ones that matter. You have an investment in justifying a world where no one else helps, everyone else screws everything up, and it supports the ultimate delusion — if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.
Of course, this isn’t true. And neither is our feeling of being useless.
Get comfortable with feeling useless.
Sometimes it’s the best way to get something done.
But it’s gonna feel weird.
