Imposter Syndrome & Anxiety
So I'm ~3 months in to the FT analyst experience. I'm lucky to be in a good group for hours and culture. I have been having really bad anxiety- I haven't been being given a ton of work (neither are most other analysts, slow deal flow atm), but I really find myself anxious almost 24/7 and have been finding it hard to live like this. It's also turning in to more extreme thoughts, obviously I won't act on them, but they pop in to my mind sometimes. I do workout and that helps clear the mind, but this feeling is with me every day. It's an unusual analyst experience because I'm in a east coast satellite office and the team is small. I feel like I conveyed myself as someone else during interviews, I was extremely dedicated and confident, and I feel like that's escaping me right now. Talking to seniors and other folks I feel like they have it together so much better than me and that I didn't deserve to make it here.
Have any of you guys tried therapy/has that helped with these types of feelings? I feel like if it keeps up it will start being detrimental to my wellbeing.
