What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview
on Imposter Syndrome:
Imposter Syndrome, also known as fraud syndrome, is a psychological pattern where an individual constantly doubts their skills, talents, and even things they have already accomplished. People suffering from Imposter Syndrome have a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud. These are stories that we tell ourselves that have an impact on our judgment and how we see certain situations in our lives.
Here are 5 Ways to
regulate your emotions
- Controlled breathing. Inhale and exhale slowly to relieve tension build-up. Take in as much air as you can and slowly release them. This technique is proven to relieve tension and calm you down in times of intense emotional responses.
- Name that emotion. Once you have already calmed down, name your emotion. Is it anger, frustration, fear, etc.? Name it because by doing so, you are acknowledging its existence. Start connecting with your feelings. Knowing that such emotions exist will help to tend to them. Emotions will always be around – do not resist, do not ignore. Deal with it because simply distracting yourself won’t work.
- Connect to your body. Check which part of your body does the feeling manifest? Is it in your heart, temple, your gut, or your head, etc.? Liberation from those disempowered stories, belief systems, and emotional suffering is through the body; relax and calm down.
- Have self-compassion. Know that the route to greater freedom, empowerment, up-scripting, and self-awareness must come through great self-compassion.
- Mindfulness and Meditation. Be aware of your emotional state; notice yourself noticing. Acknowledge your emotions, do not resist. Deal with it, do not ignore it. Know that our thoughts and beliefs, particularly those that were shaped by intense emotions and conditions, are not reliable. Most of the time, they create false narratives.
Stories are extremely influential in our lives. They serve as lenses through which we see the world around us. Our self-narratives embody crucial information about who we know ourselves to be and what our belief system is. These self-narratives, if not addressed or managed, will have a huge impact on how we see reality. What we keep telling ourselves and the thoughts we entertain will eventually become our reality. This is why we need to manage self-narratives by regulating our emotions.
