Do you feel like your achievements haven’t been a result of hard work or skill? Rather, they were a result of being in the right place at the right time, or just pure luck? Do you sometimes feel like you’ve manipulated your friends, family, peers and superiors into thinking your better than you actually are? Do all these thoughts send you into a dark spiral of fear and anxiety that someday someone will learn how much of fraud you are and reveal it to the world? It’s most likely none of those things are true, and it’s most likely your suffering from a psychological phenomenon called ‘Imposter Syndrome’.
For as long as I can remember I haven’t had a lot of hair. I’ve mostly always had it long, but it’s always been very thin. I have that baby fine, slippery type of thin hair that’s hated among those who – like me – are unlucky enough to suffer from it. I know what you thick haired girls are thinking here though – ‘I wish my hair was thin’. We always seem to want what we don’t have. But for those lucky girls, this post will hopefully enlighten you to the dark world that we thin-haired girls live in, so read on and sympathise. For my sisters out there though, this is for you.
