Am I the Imposter?

0

As we grow and learn in everything we do, whether as a mother, a daughter, a student, or co-worker, do you ever feel that feeling of no longer knowing who you are but rather feeling as though you are an “imposter?”

During my current journey through graduate school, I have started feeling more and more of what people like to call “Imposter Syndrome.”

“Imposter syndrome is loosely defined as doubting your abilities and feeling like a fraud. It disproportionately affects high-achieving people, who find it difficult to accept their accomplishments. Many question whether they’re deserving of accolades.”

Doubting our abilities? Feeling like a fraud? Questioning whether we even deserve the accolades that we are achieving in life?

AND SOMETIMES EVEN ASKING OURSELVES, “IS THIS EVEN REAL LIFE?”

Regardless of our current role, I believe at some point, most of us doubt our abilities to accomplish a goal, whether it is for ourselves, our family, or in our workplace. AND, if you’ve ever been at this point in your life, did you ever ask yourself, “Why?”

Why not me? Can’t I accomplish this goal? Why would I even doubt myself for ONE second?

Pursue your dreams. Believe in yourself. (TRULY believe in yourself!) Keep going for those kiddos! And most importantly, instead of asking yourself, “Why not me,” TELL yourself…

…THIS IS ME, AND THIS IS MY REAL LIFE.
