I thought it would only be fitting to start this off with a post relating to my mental health and about me feeling inadequate at work.
Everyone, at some point in their life, has felt inadequate. It doesn’t matter what for but it hits you out of know where and knocks you for six. This can end up making it hard to get into the swing of things. Recently, I’ve been having these feelings of not being good enough at work and in my everyday life. this feeling can go on for weeks or months but definitely leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.
Everything I do just feels wrong, it feels like I’m doing it wrong. It’s probably my mind playing tricks on me but it’s maddening. People are giving me constructive criticism but it just feels like they are moaning at me; this isn’t the case. However, It’s really affecting my confidence (which I don’t have a lot of) and making me more of a perfectionist than normal. I am a sensitive soul and take everything to heart, it can be good or bad. I’m not going to apologise for it though as it’s what makes me, me. However, mixed with my bad mental health it doesn’t make a good recipe for success.
At the minute I’m stuck in a rut. A rut of endless bad days and feeling like I’m drowning in this sadness. I’m struggling to stay afloat and look like I’m doing ok, especially in my work. All of this has made me begin to feel inadequate. The only thing I can do is hope it gets better and work with my support network to ensure this happens.
What do you guys do when you’re not feeling good enough? I’d love to hear,
