A strange uneasy nagging
They won’t like me
They’ll think I’m stupid
That I’m not worthy and yet soon
We’ll be running through those texts
At 100 miles an hour
Trusting one another
And at the other end
Sad that we will part.
I met the first of my new classes today and it was weirdly terrifying. All those feelings that I’m not good enough and that they’ll see straight through me and not want me as their teacher.
But I also know that if I hang on in there, we get to know each other, that trust builds and eventually they all feel a little bit like family. I just need to keep telling myself that I am worthy and I know what I’m talking about. To feel this way is pretty normal and I just need to push through and I’ll have a fab year.
If you’re struggling with imposter syndrome, I am right there with you – but we’ve got this!
