“If you feel a certain way you have to say it otherwise you’re going speak something else and end up feeling something else”. On this week’s episode of Marbles Lost and Found, Zain and Avanti are joined by actor, writer and stand-up comedian, Sumukhi Suresh. In this conversation, Sumukhi focuses on the importance of understanding self-worth and talks about acknowledging your mistakes as a stepping stone to building better mental health. Tune in.

Notes:

  • After the eating disorders episode, I thought we’d be hearing an approach of ‘Well, define what “good enough” is and then see how you’re getting there’.
  • Instead, we got Sumukhi Suresh telling us to embrace inadequacy and use it as motivation, and Avanti saying ‘It’s okay to be shit!’
  • I have slight disagreement though. Life is short, and we should try to find the things we excel at, so that we can create something of value in our limited time here.
  • But as a counterpoint to that, there’s what Satyen Kothari said in his Simblified episode: that when you have a hobby that you’re really shit at, it keeps you humble and prevents you from falling into hubris and self-deception.
