I think your comment sums up what I wanted to say in reaction to the post.

Have I had moments of self doubt / impostor syndrome over the years? Sure. I guess I'm in the minority & fortunate that it's neither been daily or long lasting.

I was writing code as a kid. I was writing code (for a living) while at college. I've been writing in one language or another for 30+ years (sheesh that's scary). Can other people work faster, and write better code? Sure... but my bills have always been paid, and while they're busy writing code I've been the one talking to customers and/or Directors (or C-level) to explain things.

Self acceptance takes a little maturity, but that really is the key to a happy life (IMO).
