Trying to speak Italian has made me understand how fortunate I am to be a native English speaker.

Not being able to speak a language fluently is a pain in the ass. You are essentially not even yourself.

You can’t express yourself the way you want. You can’t have interesting, deep conversations about things.

You are like a 5 year old constructing sentences one by one while everyone else is flowing.

Hopefully it gets better over time. It’s only been a few months that I’ve been learning and studying Italian. But right now it sucks a bit.

Fortunately for me, the native language of the internet is English.
