I heard this line in a recent promotion for a new show on HBO, I’m paraphrasing here but it went something like this…
There are Expectations for me to be something that I’m not good enough to be.
When we question what we are working on or what we are doing, how often do we feel that way? Is that the root of being considered an Impostor or not “good enough” to do this work at hand? Is this what roils the confusion and frustration within us?
I don’t know, all I know is this quote has me thinking about so much, how to combat it, where I have had it in myself and where I might have thrust it upon others.
