Imposter Syndrome: a concept describing individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud". ——————————————————————— I had a callback yesterday for a new TV show which like yay right? When I got to the casting office, I watched as some of my favorite actresses went into the room FOR THE SAME PART! I was shooketh to say the least. I felt like I didn’t belong, I didn’t earn my space in that room, I wasn’t good enough. Which I recognized immediately as imposter syndrome——————————————————————— In the past I have had a tendency to compare or concern myself with others work, especially if literally one of my favorite actresses walks out the room followed by roaring laughter.——————————————————————— So how does one concur imposter syndrome? I’m still figuring that out, but through a little research I found some dope ideas to help me (and maybe you) get through it! ——————————————————————— 1. keep track of compliments you receive and focus on accepting rather than blowing off praise. So I though “hey self, you got a callback too!” And “they gave me some really great feedback”
2. I learned to take mistakes in stride: they’re a natural part of the process! Maybe I flubbed a line, how I recover in the moment dictates the type of actress I am to work with. Casting pays attention y’all!
3. Remind yourself that the people who got you here are incredibly competent and did not make a mistake. They called me back because they saw potential in my process and trusted I was capable and because they saw me do the work. ——————————————————————— I’m still finding ways to combat Imposter Syndrome (don’t let me get started on being a blogger it’s rough lol) but know that if you’re feeling it too, you’re not alone, and you’re not an imposter! Unless you’re Joanne the Scammer and even she is lowkey valid af! ———————————————————————
