Imposter syndrome is something we all struggle with from time to time. It occurs when you doubt your own contribution and experience yourself as fraudulent in any given situation. No matter how common this way of thinking is, however, it’s not healthy and if you don’t build resilience around it, your self-esteem can suffer. It’s important to catch yourself when you engage in such thinking and work to challenge the inner critic that is looking to capitalize on your self-doubt.
Imposter Syndrome: the experience of believing yourself to be fraudulent or having significant doubt about your contribution.
If you experience imposter syndrome, ask yourself, How does this way of thinking serve me?
Make sure you are telling your closest friends when you experience this so they can provide empathy and help you work to fight it.
