Article Title: Have You Experienced the Imposter Syndrome?
This article deals with the topic of imposter syndrome and the author’s experience who suffers with the same.
Imposter syndrome tends to happen to high-achieving individuals marked by an inability to internalise their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud”. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be.
If not dealt with, people who feel the Imposter Syndrome can become anxious, stressed, and even go into depression. It certainly encourages self-doubt.
To conclude author recommends yoga and mindfulness meditation to calm oneself out and try to accept oneself.
