That's good to hear. I've been feeing the same but due to being a junior dev I worry it just comes from a place of inexperience.

Experience definitely helps with estimation, but even extremely senior devs often get estimates wrong. I feel like "just another hour!" is a common refrain...even 1,532,742 hours later... 😂

Ultimately every problem is unique, else there wouldn't be a requirement to estimate. With uniqueness comes a margin of error.
