I respect your opinions but what I shared is not something just like that, I have seen this in my 11+ years of career & most of the developers have gone through or In fact, going on, Exceptional is always here, You can see other comments as well.

My main purpose to help fellow developers by sharing my experience.

I have been mentoring people for the last 4 years & came across so many mentees who feel all above points. hope this makes some sense.

It's all in the mind ... people are way too concerned about what others think of them, and feel that they need to bend over backwards and go out of their way just to please or to impress, and to conform to expectations ... most of it is "I have to do this or that because people say so, or expect me to" ... learn to ignore those pressures, chart your own course, and you'll be better off for it.
