We talk a lot about imposter syndrome and how it can be difficult to overcome the voice inside your head that tells you that you either can’t accomplish something or that the things you have achieved aren’t significant.
One of the reasons that Imposter Syndrome may be so deeply ingrained in our psyche may be due to the more widespread issue of Tall Poppy Syndrome.
Tall Poppy Syndrome really gets under my skin because it shows a complete lack of empathy and understanding for others when we immediately turn to envy or jealousy as opposed to applause and celebration. This type of thinking not only causes women to make themselves smaller in the face of their successes, but it causes them to doubt that their success is even valid, to begin with.
You can’t compete with me if I want you to win too. There is room for all women to stand up and succeed and there is no reason why we can’t cheer each other on as opposed to tearing each other down.
By coming together and being brave enough to unify and support each other, we can set the tone for generations of women who come after us to continue to encourage one another.
