My first woke aliment:
The diagnosis is in. I have a case of the most diagnosed social behavioral condition identified in the last year. The dreaded Impostor syndrome.
My doctor sent me a message on his private client website saying the following: “Impostor syndrome is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their skills, talents or accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud”.
Thanks a lot doc! So I am a fraud! I paid good money to hear this? I could get that much and so much more from my ex, let alone from my own image in the mirror.
I’ve already re-invented myself twice before. Once in junior high with an innocent misunderstanding having to do with confusion of restroom labeling and the second with my first marriage (many of my readers have experienced this second event within their own personal marriage history).
Like I need more people doubting me and my achievements.
But wait! When I re-read his message, it might mean that I doubt my achievements???
So does that mean I have reached more than I am aware of? Great!
Where do I go get that list?
