Been doing this for 10 years and it doesn't matter how long that imposter syndrome never truly goes away. Plus, being at meetups and socializing is another anxiety causing thing.
The best thing you can do is remember that we are all learning, the games are made up, and the points don't matter! 😉
And as a community we try to remember stories like this so we remain warm and welcoming to others. This stuff is hard, no matter who you are, and it's impossible without asking for and receiving help. Good luck on your journey and we're always here is you need help along the way!
Thank you so much for saying this!
Yep, almost 30 years here and I'm still anxious when it comes to presentations in front of more than three people - I literally laid down on my floor at home for an hour to calm myself the last time I had to give a presentation.
I second this comment wholeheartedly. We are are learning and fitting into our own skin over time. We all ask for help. Keep it up!
Thanks for confirmation, have had many panic attacks myself. Always a fun phone call when you can't breathe in the middle lol!
Followed on Twitter. _^
Thanks for the input! I resonate with the laying on the floor bit very much haha!!
