It is no longer a news that many people are facing insecurities as it pertains to the body and general livelihood which directly affects their state of mind which in turn affects their entire well being. An individual said to be in this state has an “Impostor Syndrome”
According to Forbes, nearly 70% of people experience Impostor Syndrome, or the inability to internalize achievements particularly common among high-achievers.
At the core of Impostor Syndrome is a persistent belief that you’re not good enough or are incapable of facing challenges life throws at you despite evidence that proves you’re skilled, such as degrees, promotions, positive relationships, and praise. You feel like a phony, a fake, or a fraud.
Globally, people are bothered by this epidemic, the symptoms ranging from lack of self confidence, low self esteem, depression, discrimination (racial or otherwise) to the aftermath including suicide, xenophobia, hatred and rivalries.
Daily, there are developing cases of individuals who feel they are not good enough, sometimes as a result of disabilities, low intellectual capacity, racial discrimination, poor educational and socio-economic background, etc., others are less confident of the sizes and shapes of their different body features or parts, for instance, the breast, lips, eyes, nose, butt, face, nails, skin colouration etc.
