Don't feel like you have to know a lot about a topic or tool to use - you just have to know enough to get started and you'll figure things out as you go.

Don't get obsessed over perfection and understanding everything. Be patient with yourself. Being a developer means sometimes accepting uncertainty or being patient as you work through it.

Very relatable and worth remembering. Thanks for taking time to write.

I am glad to hear this resonates with you. My mentors have encouraged me to focus on these things. and that has helped calm me down when things seem overwhelming and I am reminding myself of these things too.
