have had numerous conversations recently about the imposter syndrome…

had breakfast with a dear friend and we talked about how our small group has been a lifesaver for each of us and the place where we’ve been able to discuss our feelings of inadequacy

shortly after, I was speaking with another person who had just had a preemie… their partner was spending most of each day at the hospital, but feeling guilty that she wasn’t spending enough time with their older child… the conversation turned to mother guilt… that feeling that you aren’t spending enough time, doing enough things, etc, etc, etc, for one or more of your children…

not long after that I was watching The Social and a gold medal athlete was talking about the need to believe you can do whatever it is, and not get stuck in the Ican’t do it place…

have just started to read The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women by Valerie Young… barely into it and it is ringing so true… looking forward to getting to the end;-)…

do you suffer from this syndrome too?
