Does this sound like imposter syndrome to you?

Everytime something goes wrong for me, I blame myself. Every time something works out for me, I'm worried people will say I didn't deserve it. If I am romantically interested in someone, I don't take the shot because I don't think I'm good enough. I overwork myself to prove I am worthy of the job I have, and got a minor injured for it. I just keep trying to be perfect, but I fail every time. What do you guys think?

I did that, when I was young, I thought I was right but told I wasn't, then I got older and experienced identical things knowing easily I was correct, but again told I was wrong, made me hang up that guilt hat, and not wear a hat at all.

Ha that sounds very reminscent. I have had a few instances of that during my grad school emotional moments.

Why do you keep telling yourself that?
