Rockalily Style - Impostor Syndrome


Date night outfit, a dress I often choose when I want to blend feeling a little sexy but super comfy. It's tight and shows my shape, without showing too much skin. I usually feel uncomfortable with too much flesh on show!

I also spent the evening considering 'impostor syndrome" which wikipedia explains as:

"Impostor syndrome is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments. Despite external evidence of their competence, those with the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be. Notably, impostor syndrome is particularly common among high-achieving women."

"Gifted women often work hard in order to prevent people from discovering that she is an "impostor". This hard work often leads to more praise and success, which perpetuates the impostor feelings and fears of being "found out""
