I don't want to suggest a life of constant drinking but, sometimes it gives you confidence and courage. Seems like I only land new tricks when I've had two alcoholic beverages.

Lighthearted music helps too. I'm sure everyone here can relate to what you're feeling, skating is dangerous and unpredictable, it's nothing to be ashamed of.

How important is progress to fun for you?  If you aren't enjoying the things you can already do that are fun because you have it in your mind that you're supposed to be learning then you're not getting skateboarding at all.

First of all, this thing is a fucking toy and it's supposed to be fun.  If you're beating yourself up over some tricks, you need to step away.  If you're too high to skate, then don't smoke weed especially the paranoia inducing stress weed that you're puffing.

Some people go their whole life sucking on a skateboard and having an awesome time doing it.  I've seen dudes with natural talent landing the hardest shit without any appreciation or joy at what they could accomplish on a skateboard.  The tricks will come, but would it matter if you don't enjoy doing them at all?  Just go with the flow and push the boundaries of what you can already do.  Appreciate whatever tricks you already have because everyone loses tricks.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

its all about fun dude, i could no-complies and shuv-its for the rest of my life and be happy
Optimism is key
Besides i always progress when im having fun with friends or something, dont sweat it, everything will come around for ya..
for instance it took me 2-3 years to land a kickflip, after that everything came easier

veganshawn gave some advice years back that was spot on

put the bong down, sober up and go out slappy some curbs
