Stories from Strangers

We’ll have a new question here every month for you to answer and engage with. Think of this as an online journal, except everyone gets a page in the book, and no one knows who’s written what (fun!).

Pour your heart out or read through the pages of someone else’s heart. Either way, we hope you find comfort in reading these stories from strangers.

    That I’m probably making a mistake with a task, that answers and solutions are obvious to everyone except me and that I’m the only one who isn’t innovative and dreams of taking a nap 😴

    Am I good enough? Have I taken on more than I can handle? Am I fooling everyone into thinking I’m competent? Is everyone secretly cross with me?

    That I’m not capable of doing work, insecure about my abilities to perform

    Will I cut it? Am a good enough/qualified for the job? How long before people realise I am a fraud? I am short on creative juice.
