Getting sick of what's bothering you? Are your thoughts feeling tough to control? Been challenging to unwind, enjoy yourself, or get a good night's sleep? Feeling emotionally lonely, frustrated with family, or disappointed with your friends? You may be successful professionally and still experience dips in your self-esteem, mood, and energy. Imposter syndrome goes hand in hand with perfectionism, procrastination, and productivity. The irony is you may be working harder than most people around you, and yet feel worse about yourself than they do. You don't have to keep living like this. Therapy can help you understand how your mind works and optimize accordingly. For example, you can catch self-defeating negative thoughts and reframe them to be more helpful for you through CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). You have the right to feel better too.
