You'd probably be surprised about the number of times co-workers etc have come to me with concerns and my reply has been:

"This is just imposter syndrome. You're fine, here, lets look through the history of your achievements so you can remember some of the positives."

Couple of days later, some of them open up with "I never knew Imposter Syndrome was a 'thing' - thanks!" and later still, I've had some come to me with "Hey, sorry, I'm feeling it again & don't know what to do."... "First, stop apologising, second, sit here & look through the Sprint Reviews with me again..."

I can understand and feel what you are going through. It happens to the best of us.

But you are doing a great job helping them out. That's very generous of you!

All just part & parcel of being a Senior - in my view.
