Radical Self acceptance - a call to reject imposter syndrome

What happens when you reject a limiting belief system that is developed from an imposed social construction?

What happens when you turn your back on those hidden conversations you have with yourself that you wouldn't dare admit?

Imposter syndrome is the result of a society that makes us lose our authenticity. Especially for those from marginalised backgrounds. But we forget that our uniqueness is what makes us special. It gives us an extraordinary perspective.

That's why I've changed my notions on imposter syndrome. I simply refuse to subscribe to it. I don't allow it to stop me from relentlessly pursuing my aspirations or ambitions. The simple truth is, I believe I am talented and worthy of great opportunities and therefore I do not subscribe into it.
I have come to the realisation that if we are going to be the makers of our own lives, we need to push past those boundaries put on us by external systems.

I am my own creation. I am master of my own destiny.

I refuse to absorb anything that is going to become a self- fulfilling prophecy, anything that develops limiting beliefs and can bleed into other areas of life.

It's time to change the narrative. I invite anyone reading this who has experienced imposterism to feel the power of rejecting it. Allow yourself a transformative moment. Do not absorb contaminated external ideas of who you are. Instead, try understanding yourself innately. Know your qualities, know your abilities.

Develop a deep comfort with yourself, your value, your worth. Be defiantly content with who you are. Know what you deserve.

Allow yourself to lead, rather than be directed, to make sure that your path and choices are only based on a deep sense of self-worth and abilities, concentrating on all that you are. Reject any sense of a lacking and any paths generated from a sense of deficiency.

Let's not give ourselves a narrative that we don't deserve. Instead, consider that others will love what they encounter within you. Be assertive. Refuse to believe that others are better than you, smarter or more eloquent.

And you will overcome imposter syndrome, and have a better relationship with the world. And even better, you will develop a better relationship with yourself.

That is radical self-acceptance.
