Imposter Syndrome

She had a classic case of imposter syndrome, spending endless hours worrying someone would discover she was not good enough, smart enough or any other “enough.” When she realized being
her true self was the one thing no one else could be, she finally understood she was GOOD ENOUGH! – Queenisms™

We know this one hits home for many of us. We spoke to a group of 2,000 women at the Massachusetts Conference for Women in Boston two weeks ago and asked for a show of hands for everyone who felt this way at one time or another. Nearly every hand in the room went up. You are not alone and together we can fight this.Even the most accomplished woman can slip into the fear that someone will figure out that she doesn’t know everything. Well, guess what? Nobody knows everything. But as lifelong learners we have the ability to continue to gather new skills, passions, talents and experiences and right here, right now, you are enough.

We’re here to tell you that you are enough and you’ve always been enough and you always will be.

    I fight this one DAILY. As a women in a predominantly male field of work (technology), it’s so hard to say I’ll work through something when I know I can just hand it over and the “guys” will already know how to do it. But I keep trying to learn one new thing each week (if not day) so that one day I can look back and say, by golly, I learned a lot.

    This post really hits home for me. Practicing self-acceptance and safely being more vulnerable has helped me so much. We are all human and thus we are all imperfect. Thank you.
