In an interview with The Tennessean, Ballerini said that “It’s exciting to be comfortable with continuing to navigate the exploration of my most authentic self” while adding that “crazy, exhausting pressure” due to overwhelming stats do not matter. According to the singer, “achieving stereotypical standards of success can change your life. But, learning [what else can exist beyond that] is important, too.”
Kelsea Ballerini on overcoming imposter syndrome
Her realizations through exploring herself better, Kelsea Ballerini said, helped her overcome the imposter syndrome which made her think that nobody is aware of her music. She explained to the media outlet that, “It’s taken me a decade to defeat the imposter syndrome that makes me feel like people don’t know my music”.
Weighing in on her fans’ reaction, Ballerini expressed that in the past year, they started showing interest in her activities beyond music. This included her divorce from fellow country artist Morgan Evans and her newfound relationship with “Outer Banks” actor Chase Stokes. She described this as a “highly intimidating experience” where people show equal interest in both her personal life and her artistic endeavors.
In her extended release “Rolling Up the Welcome Mat (For Good),” building on the EP launched on Valentine’s Day that recounted her split from Evans and her journey forward, Ballerini skillfully navigated the intersection of her personal experiences and artistic expression.
“While I played a part in its creation, this music truly belongs to my fans as well. This interaction with my fans has reshaped the trajectory of my career,” she remarked.
Looking ahead, Ballerini expressed her desire to keep embracing whatever comes her way and evolving accordingly.
What is imposter syndrome?
Impostor syndrome refers to a psychological phenomenon where individuals doubt their accomplishments and fear being exposed as frauds despite evidence of their competence. Those experiencing this syndrome often believe that their success is due to luck or external factors rather than their own skills and efforts. They constantly compare themselves to others and attribute their achievements to external validation, downplaying their abilities.
This self-doubt can lead to anxiety, stress, and a persistent feeling of being inadequate, even in the face of achievements. Impostor syndrome is common among high-achieving individuals, such as professionals, students, and creatives. Recognizing and addressing these feelings can help individuals regain confidence and acknowledge their true capabilities.
