The overwhelming feeling that we have not earned our successes and achievements. It can manifest through anxiety, overthinking, perfectionism, and fear. It can stem from self-doubt, comparing yourself to others, or a recent failure.
"It's not what you are that holds you back; it's what you think you are not".
- Denis Waitley
Do you ever feel like you're not good enough? Like you're an imposter who's just waiting to be found out?
If so, you're not alone. Imposter syndrome is a real phenomenon, and it can affect anyone, regardless of intelligence or ability.
Imposter syndrome is characterized by a constant feeling of anxiety, fear, and self-doubt. It can make you feel like you're not worthy of success, and cause you to doubt your abilities.
It's easy to fall into the trap of comparison when you're feeling like an imposter. But the truth is, everyone has fears and doubts. It's what you do with those fears and doubts that counts.
Acknowledging your accomplishments is one step in freeing yourself from imposter syndrome. Our therapists are here to help you see your strengths and move away from the feeling that you are a fraud.
