Do you suffer from the imposter syndrome?
Imposter Syndrome, imposters, comparison, Jesus

Do you suffer from imposter syndrome?

It’s that sense of “I don’t belong here and I’m going to get found out”,

and it’s a very common sentiment when it comes to our daily work. How do we deal with it?

One of the things driving imposter syndrome is comparison.

We compare ourselves to others in our field and feel we don’t stack up: "I could never be as good as them."

But what if we felt free not to be because our sense of value came from somewhere else?

That’s precisely what Jesus offers.

Our value doesn’t come from our efforts but the life we have in Him, and when your value comes from Him you don’t need to compare yourself to others, and that can free us from imposter syndrome.
