Is it okay to be bad at JavaScript in 2018?

Really freaking hate my JavaScript skills and infinitely long list of frameworks

    Try to understand how JS works and follow the docs. Stop jumping around from a hype train to another because you'll be lost, annoyed and stressed. Instead use the tools you need when you need.

    @dotPy As freelancer, hobbyist or you have real work experience? If you're freelance/hobbyist don't despair. Try to land an entry level / junior position at a medium company / agency.
    If you're working in an agency / company than try to find something else better for you.

    I have 3 years experience in a small company ( 6 members ) and I'm still considering myself entry level / junior and I'm planning my leave. I am the only experienced JS guy and trust me... Is bad really bad. You need to land a job where you feel stupid, useless, noob because only then you'll learn more. Don't worry to much about this. 2 years is not much you can still change things, learn things.

    Learn pure JS, dont touch frameworks until you can do the language itselfe.

    Also this book series will teach you all the things you need.
