The Human Aspect of Caitlin

I felt like an imposter because inside I was seeing all my mistakes and flaws, but people around me saw me as the “perfect” woman. Thanks to my perfectionism I had created a massive gap between how people saw me and how I saw myself, and this gave my inner critic plenty of fuel to go at me. I tried to cover my insecurities by doing even more and I felt trapped in a loop of expectations and responsibilities. When I tried to be vulnerable about it people downplayed it, and I suppressed the emotions completely to the point where I felt lonely.
