impostor syndrome

noun

  1. the persistent inability to believe that one’s success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one’s own efforts or skills.

Oxford Dictionary

I’ve struggled with this my entire career, hell, I still sometimes feel it when comparing myself to what peers have done since going into quarantine.

It’s counter-productive, toxic, and certainly not something that we need right now, especially since we’re literally living in an almost-apocalyptic-dystopian situation.

I ended up taking a break from my online life for a week and it was so refreshing. My mind was clear for the first time in ages, which allowed me to things into perspective.

I also started practicing some self-care and self-kindness (I know they sound like buzzwords but hear me out).

Here’s what worked for me – I know it can be hard but you’ll start to feel better after a few days, trust me.
