Imposter Syndrome: Attempting to Make Sense of It!

Hello everyone 🙂

I hope that online learning hasn’t been too diasterous for you!

For this month’s post I wnated to touch on the issue of Imposter Syndrome as it’s something that a lot of us go through, and it might be something you have started to experience if you’ve just started university.

That fear that you get when you make yourself believe that you’ve been given someone else’s feedback or grade? Maybe feeling the pressure of needing to meet cultural standards? Having troubles feeling like you belong even though you know deep down that you’ve worked incredibly hard and deserve your place? These may be thoughts and feeling that sound all too familiar.

I felt SOOOOO apprehensive (and slightly vulnurable if I must admit) filming and putting this out there, but I guess that’s a sign that I should. So, here’s a disorganised video of my rambling on about Imposter Syndome, my expeirences of it, and trying (and failing) to make sense of this very complicated phenomenon!

I also don’t know why I look so sad in this thumbnail 😂, but we’re good!

Take care (virtual hugs🤗),

Aimee

    Every time I open Instagram, I can see a lot of successful people of my age. I mean much more successful than I am. Recently I’ve started struggling with Imposter Syndrom thinking I didn’t do anything significant comparing to those people. So, I DELETED THE INSTAGRAM APP and my life got better.
