“Impostor syndrome” is that feeling where — even if you get good grades, good jobs, accomplish things, have special talents, and people compliment you — you feel like you’re tricking everyone and you’re actually not good at anything.
And it can wreak total havoc on your peace of mind:
1. Like when you are job-searching:
2. Every time you have to get something done:
3. When someone recognizes that you are great:
4. Or when you finally land your dream job:
5. When you start to see some success:
6. Or are given new challenges:
7. Even when you’re a winner:
8. When you worry about what other people think of you:
9. When things go wrong:
10. When you’re given opportunities:
11. Or when you’re just trying to get some damn sleep:
12. When good things happen in your life:
13. But just remember: LOTS OF AWESOME PEOPLE feel exactly the same way you do:
- The Dakota Access Pipeline will no longer cross under a river near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, a major victory for protesters.
- An armed man was arrested Sunday near a pizza spot named in a Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory. Here's how "Pizzagate" was spread.
- The death toll from Oakland's warehouse party fire has risen to 33. "We're expecting the worst and hoping for the best," officials said Sunday.
