Mine has to be "It's just too hard" and "I probably should have started when I was much younger.

But now I'm challenging myself and I know I can do it.

 You see, the trick is to laugh at your mistakes but at the same time know that making those mistakes is improving your language. Don't try to take yourself too seriously!

Most important of all relax, enjoy and have fun!

Hey Aileen, I wish I had something super encouraging to say to you, but all I can say is, it's okay to take a step back and reevaluate all the reasons that made you start in the first place. Or better still,take a break,do something else that motivates you and makes you happy and when you find your why,you come right back and kick ass!

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
