Most of us are familiar with imposter syndrome, perhaps a little too well. It's the insecure feeling that you don't think you're good enough; that you don't know what you're doing; and worse yet, that you'll eventually get outed as a fraud and shunned by everyone.

The truth is, you're not alone. None of us knows what we're doing. Even the best of us are making things up as we go along. Don't believe us? This video from School of Life really hits home in the feels, from how imposter syndrome comes about, why we have it, and what we can do to deal with it. And trust us, we're all in the same boat in some form or another.
