What is Imposter Phenomenon?

Feel Self -Conscious About Telling Your Story?

Telling our own stories - opening up about the challenges we've faced and the obstacles we've overcome - can make us feel vulnerable, but it can feel liberating too.  And sometimes, what we have to say turns out to be exactly what somebody else needs to hear.

If you feel like your own story isn't worth telling - or like your own journey isn't special or inspiring enough to share - you might be experiencing something called imposter phenomenon, a set of uncomfortable feelings that can cause us to doubt ourselves and discourage us from engaging in certain activities.

In this video, R.J. Jenkins introduces the topic of imposter phenomenon, and makes clear that these feelings are common, natural, and manageable.
