for stuff that's tedious or you forget how to do or don't feel confident doing though you do it regularly:
next time you do the thing, do it step by step and take notes as you go.

make a checklist for next time so you don't forget anything.
see if there's anything you can automate, too. it will make it less tedious.

you can enjoy things. there's no need to defend a work's creators in order to take in what they've made. maybe you enjoy minecraft but hate notch; maybe RHPS touched you; maybe you like music by an artist who pulled some BS. you don't need to curate yourself to Works By The Pure. enjoy things. enjoy life ❤️
