Fake it till you BECOME it
It’s a universal human hardship - the imposter syndrome. Every single one of us suffers from this, that if people REALLY knew us, deep down the way we know ourselves, then they might think less of us. The fear that by showing your true self, you’ll be exposed as the flawed person that you are.⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s something I’m constantly trying to overcome - this fear of being less than perfect or having all the answers. There has been many times in my life when I find myself in a situation and I find myself thinking: I don’t deserve to be here, or I’m not qualified or experienced enough to do this.
I find that when this feeling takes over and I question my abilities and who I am on a deeper level, I remind myself that everyone else has felt this way too. I take a few deep breaths and think of another time I felt this way and way it turned out to be all in my own head. This brings me to the realization that again, we're all just winging it and learning as we go. You just have to fake it till you BECOME it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
