What is Imposter Syndrome?

Kayla Lords

I am an erotic author, sex blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, an opinionated marketer, and a speaker with a focus on BDSM and D/s. Here at The Smutlancer, I help people who want to create content or products about sex get paid to do it. I'm sharing what I've learned as a freelancer and a sex blogger to build a career. You can find me online sharing my innermost sexual thoughts and experiences and helping kinksters have healthy BDSM relationships. I'm also a masochistic babygirl submissive with an amazing and sadistic Daddy Dom and business partner, John Brownstone.

    I love that you gave it a name. I suffer anxiety and since I began blogging only a few months ago I’ve definitely experienced my share of imposter syndrome. Sometimes you have to just fight through it and write that post, otherwise, if you let it win you could end up quitting something you would otherwise enjoy. That’s why most of us write, because we love it. Now the trick is to learn to overcome imposter syndrome and anxiety which I’m sure would affect most of us at times. Thank-you for another thoughtful, thought provoking post.

      Everything I’ve read about imposter syndrome is that it’s really hard to overcome BUT it becomes easier to ignore all the time. And one thing I read (I wish I remembered where) said it was an indication you were trying bigger and better things because you’re out of your comfort zone – which can be a wonderful place to be.
