When do accusations of over-sensitivity encroach upon one’s right to be easily offended? Asking for a friend.
I am highly sensitive and suffer from the worst imposter syndrome – it bugs me senseless. I just don’t seem to be able to get on top of it at all in a work context. I love my current job, couldn’t be more suited on paper, and yet here it comes, seeping back in through the cracks to burden my evenings.
I rarely feel like I have anything smart to say in the moment; that I’m living on some sort of alternate wavelength a lot of the time as I come at things differently from my colleagues. It probably seems like much of what I say is contrary and ego most definitely comes into it in terms of wanting to do things my way, although I’m trying to sit back and go with the majority a bit more. I just wish I could be confident in my own abilities.
It feels really rubbish.
