    don't think I am stupid, but this is suggesting otherwise

    Hello,

    Could you tell me how we could say the last sentence below in other way with the same meaning.

    I can't believe I messed that up. I don't think I am stupid, but this is suggesting otherwise.


    Thanks for you help in advance.

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.***

    I can't believe I messed that up. (Normally) I don't think I am stupid, but this one showed me the opposite.

    Of course there are many other (and certainly better) versions.
    I hope we will read them later

    P.S. Maybe it's better to say "
    I didn't think I was stupid,..." because the rest is past.

    Cheers!
