I wish I knew imposter syndrome before joining Coding Bootcamp

Tips for Coping With Impostor Syndrome

  • You feel like you “got lucky” when you actually prepared well and worked hard.
  • You find it hard to accept praise.
  • You apologize for yourself when you didn’t actually do something wrong.
  • You hold yourself to incredibly — sometimes impossibly — high standards.
  • You find the fear of failure paralyzing.
  • You avoid expressing confidence because you think people will see it as overcompensating or obnoxious.
  • You’re convinced you’re not enough.
