Finding Hope When You Feel Like an Impostor: Combating Impostor Syndrome with Lauren Abrams

WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE AN IMPOSTOR

Today, we’re talking about impostor syndrome and your divorce. What does it mean to see yourself as an impostor? You’ll start to doubt your own abilities and decisions. You’ll struggle when it’s time to assert your own rights and needs. You’ll find you lack confidence in negotiating and making decisions. This week, attorney and fellow podcaster Lauren Abrams joins us to tell her story of 52 weeks of hope, and how overcoming impostor syndrome can lead to freedom from stress, anxiety, and fear.

The first step is noticing the negative self-talk. There are other tools we discuss – journaling, meditating, and more. But it’s hard to work through this. So tune in to this week’s show to get some thoughts on ways to combat this if you’re finding you feel like an impostor as you’re dealing with your own divorce.
