Thank you for your newsletter. Imposter syndrome is something I have everyone I put a photo up on Instagram. I think it’s not as good as the professional people that I’m never going to look professional. But I keep on uploading.

I tried to click through for the competition but it didn’t go to where I needed to write. Am I doing something silly ?

I’m thinking it’s a very catch 22 thing. Feeling inferior, feeling rejected, put more of yourself out there, increased rejection, increased feelings of inferiority, put more of yourself out there...

I’ve read a quote, attributed to Einstein, that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Maybe I didn’t work hard enough, maybe no one else gets me, maybe I’m too depressed to comment. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Heck, it’s even hard for me to submit a comment.

I appreciate the article very much though.

Thanks for sharing your experience! as always an insightful article. I don't think I've made connections through photography lol I wouldn't call a connection when there's a one way communication. I did a little experiment with the people I talk with on Instagram to see if there was a true connection. I stopped sending messages to those people that I usually chat with to see if they only DM me because I DM them, and I found out there's no connection lol. It's been days since I haven't DM people and I haven't received any DM from them neither. Usually the people who like my stories and photos are my relatives lol.
