Intrusive thought

“I try but I’m completely convinced that I will fail.  I cannot do this.  It’s only a matter of time before everybody notices and sees how much of a failure I am.  I’ve been so lucky and given so many opportunities I don’t deserve more.”

  1. You have to think of some thing you can do and do well and repeat it to yourself, once you believe that then look for something else. Hard I know but this is how I stop those thoughts. x

  2. I’m convinced that thought is carried like bacteria in the air, infecting people who have no reason to be feeling that way because it couldn’t be further from the truth.

    Years ago, I read in some crap womens magazine about Imposter Syndrome. I’m sure its just a crap womens magazine invented condition but some of it made so much sense. Apparently Imposter Syndrome involves having this constant (unfounded) fear that one day everyone around you will suddenly realise what you’re REALLY like and your carefully constructed facade will shatter.

    I put zero faith or trust in crap womens magazines but when I read that it made me feel better cause I realised that one of my major fears was actually not that uncommon.

    Meh…I know this is coming off as trite and faux-optimistic. It’s not supposed to be (and I’m sure you know me well enough to know that).

    Your comment on my blog…you are my fucking HERO right now.
