Overcoming imposter syndrome
Imposter syndrome comes in waves for me. When I’m feeling confident in my work and like I know what I’m doing, imposter syndrome is nowhere to be seen. But when I’m feeling stretched and challenged by a new project, I immediately doubt myself and my skill-set.
The anxiety that comes with imposter syndrome is exhausting, but the biggest thing that’s helped is working on my self confidence. For the past year I’ve been focusing a lot on self esteem and learning to set boundaries (both personally and professionally). When I start doubting my skills because of a new challenge, I have to stop and tell myself that I am capable and can learn how to do this, and that I am allowed to ask for help.
