Dealing with Imposter Syndrome

Hello Poetteers,

A few months ago there was a hashtag, the imperfect boss, going around and it got me thinking. Last week I read a blog post about the imposter syndrome and I knew I had to speak up.

The imposter syndrome is “a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist even in face of information that indicates that the opposite is true.”

Sometimes I don't feel like a real poet. I feel like i'm just putting together words. Poetry is an art that evokes emotion. My readers remind me that I do just that.

In another article I was reading it gave tips on how to ground you. You should really listen to the feedback, write it down with the examples that prove that. When you feel lost and concerned take a look at what readers have had to say.

stay inspired,
