Yes, I have experience;

Competence will lead to Confidence which will lead to Enthusiasm. That's when you 'love' it.

and don't compare yourself to others at least not in a harsh manner but more in awe and wonder. (As in asking why?)

Ifor this is a question about the nature of time then you can love it. Maybe in another universe you're good at it so one day you might zap your way overy there. You'd have to coexist with your otherself without having to give away your existence. Or you can also cultivate and refine your dream by continuously putting it to the test until you hate that thing but are now good at it. That also depends on what the external standard is in being good at it.

I love singing, I really truly suck at singing

A friend of mine loves Poetry, he gets really annoyed when we all burst out laughing at his poems because they are supposed to be either love poems or tragic poems, not comedies.

I'm only understand like 50-75% of what you just said, but it sounds good.
Honestly I'm probably just tired.


I love physical exercise and basketball but have no inherent athleticism and suck at basketball.
Of course you can love something your not good at; it' just not the thing your going to live by doing.

Drawing. I used to love it but now that I've tried to make a career out of it, I realized how flawed it is. Sending portfolios to potential job prospects with nothing but rejection because its not good enough can put a damper on the joy of it. I still love to draw but realize there are limits to how talented you think you are when a professor or a professional scrutinizes it.

All I see now are flaws whenever I put a pencil to paper.

(OP, I also see what you mean with fiction writing. I'm kind of in the same boat myself Don't give up on the writing! )

I'm pretty horrible at fighting games. All them newfangled combo strings are the worst.

Only a coward would hate something just because they're not good at it. Feeling indifferent is safe/acceptable.

I love music, I'm completely tone-deaf though.

You don't have to be good at something to love it but being good at something makes it easier to enjoy it.
If you enjoy doing something you'll often be better at it than you are at something you don't enjoy. So, if you enjoy doing something you're not good at you'll often wind up better at it over time.
That's not to say you'll end up being good at something you simply have no talent for just because you enjoy doing it, that's something that mostly happens in fiction, but practice does go a long way for most acquired skills.

I like cooking, but there's room for improvement. I'm good with most proteins and grilling but that's about it.

Music is the art of creating expressions of an effect, like emotions and situations. Music can describe feelings and thoughts that many people can have. Music is a natural tool because it is a way of communication. Listen to music and don't worry about hometasks and don't worry how to write an apa style term paper https://termpapernow.com/articles/how-to-write-term-paper-in-apa-format-1270/

To answer your question: yes you can, its not always about being good at something - if you enjoy it then that's all you need.

I love to dance classically and have been attending regular classes for a long time, but I suck!
