Discussion on: Imposter syndrome

Actaully this is one of the ideas to overcome impostor syndrome I came up recently.

Don't wait till someone will tell you that you are good. Just start helping others - especially those who just started. Look around and if you see someone strugle, just ask if maybe you can help

You don't even have to know all the answers. Sometimes the best help is just going through some problems together, some pair coding, exchanging knowledge and ideas.

I think this could be a good start to be more self confident. And also others a little it less experienced will really appreciate this making you feel even better :)

Yeah i 100% agree, i think sharing/helping others is one of the best things,it not only makes you better but also makes you realize your abilities or what you have to work on.
