    Default Self-doubt

    Why do we doubt ourselves? Iíve started seeing private clients on the side for the summer. Theyíre older and younger than the age range I usually work with at my school, but I work with children these ages all the time at the hospital, so itís not out of my area of experience. Yes itís a different setting, their home, but itís the same skills Iím working on. DH looks at me like Iím crazy saying -you do this all the time at the hospital

    Why DO we doubt ourselves? I wish I knew but I feel it too. I'm glad you have the support of your DH. I'm sure he's right! It sounds like you're going to do great! Good luck!

    I've been a part of LOTS of leadership training through work and have read many HBR articles about this. You are absolutely not alone, imposter syndrome is very real and pervasive through all industries, all levels. Adding in the changes due to pandemic and now your change in how your work is being done, and it's no wonder you are feeling increased anxiety and less confidence!! So be gentle with yourself. Your DH may be defaulting to the standard husband "I have to help fix this problem, not just listen to it" approach.

    Thanks. I feel better after day 2 of the new setting. DH is right that I need to rely on skills I already have. I have to be flexible and think on my feet when working with new patients, need to transfer this to the home setting
