Daily Prompt: The Great Pretender

Are you full of confidence or have you ever suffered from Imposter Syndrome? Tell us all about it.

Here I was.  Ready to hammer out the perfect text to accompany the perfect picture for what I thought the Prompt was about. Instead?  I clicked “Imposter Syndrome”.

Oh.

That.

Strangely enough, I am guilty of this.  I wouldn’t call it a Syndrome.  I like to call it a defense mechanism.  It’s more self-deprecation than anything else.

  3. I am big on Imposter Syndrome. I am terrible at taking compliments, I always find some excuse (like luck or timing) as to why I’ve been successful at something, and I further downplay that success. To further the matter, I have, for most of my life, only been surrounded by people who give out constructive criticism, but never straight-up compliment (or they’re mean and tell me how wrong I am). I’ve recently started developing my own sense of self-confidence, and it is so alien to me that I am uncomfortable with it. I wonder what it’s like to have never questioned my own abilities?
