impostor syndrome


When I started posting here I had no expectations for what might come of this page, I just wanted to share information that might be helpful.

Even as an experienced therapist, I definitely experience impostor syndrome and have to remind myself that I deserve the success I’m seeing in my life, both personally and professionally.

Impostor syndrome is an internal experience where someone doubts their accomplishments and has feelings of not being good enough, smart enough, or “real enough". 😓

Despite any evidence to the contrary, those experiencing this phenomenon remain convinced that they do not deserve what they have achieved. People with this experience (most frequently studied in high achieving women) incorrectly attribute their success to luck, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent than they perceive themselves to be. 

Anyone out there struggle with the experience of impostor syndrome? I promise you’re not alone! 💕
