Not good enough

One-in-a-millionOne-in-a-million NoobPosts: 586 Incredible Poster
Hi guys I'm not sure what's wrong with me at the moment. I've started having this felling of not being good enough. I can't even say that something has happened to make me feel this way. I feel this at home especially at work like I'm not doing a good job despite my manager, colleagues and specialists that come in telling me I am.
It's making it harder for me to work as I feel like I shouldn't be there if I can't do my job properly :(
I can't explain why I feel like this but something is just sticking in my mind telling me im not!

    Hey @One-in-a-million,

    Sorry to hear you've started feeling like this :(

    When you say you don't feel good enough - is that in a specific aspect of your life or more of an overall feeling? It's natural to sometimes question whether or not we are really good at something, I'm sure that others here may have felt this way at some point.

    It's important to remember that we can't always define what makes us "enough", and that's okay. It might help to think about all the things you've achieved and embracing where you are today. A little reminder of these things each day can go a long way *hug*

    Hi raich I'm not actually quite sure what it is. Somr days are different to others. It's just sometimes I don't feel I quite belong where I am. More when I'm at work, I love my job and where I work but sometimes wonder and feel that I'm not good enough to work in that profession, it sounds stupid but despite my manager, and other professionals who come in telling me im doing well. I feel like I don't know what im doing/ not doing anything right. My job does require me to be At my very best and sometimes I just feel my very best isn't what's required.

    Sorry to hear you're feeling like this @One-in-a-million and you dont' sound silly at all! How do you feel outside of work? Do you feel similar or a bit happier?

    If it's mainly at work, perhaps you could talk to your manager a little more about your progress and how things are going?

    Outside of work I feel a bit better but now and then I still have this feeling mainly I could be a better friend/ person general. I don't really understand why?

    I have spoken to my manager and asked if im doing the right things and she has assured me that I am. But sometimes I wonder wether people say I am just to not upset me.
