Do you have a perfectly fitting thimble? One that stays on your finger well and doesn't fall off if you point your finger down? But not too tight either.
This one is mine. Back when I first needed a thimble someone gave me one that always fell off and was a pain to use. I mentioned it to my mother who informed me thimbles came in different sizes. News to me. She had several extras and we went through a thimble fitting. This one is the result. Yes, it's a cheap generic one, but it's mine and I like it.
