i kinda feel embarrassed all the time. i feel like it's never enough, i don't know enough, there's so much i don't know. i do enjoy my work and sometimes there are moments where i'm proud of what i've done, or these "i'm a fucking genious" moments when i solve a bug or a certain problem or when something finally works. but if i have to do something new, i tend to panic a bit, as long as i do not yet have a concrete solution in mind.
my perception contrasts with the feedback people give me, but even when i'm happy about the positive feedback, i tend to think to myself, "they're wrong, it's not that great"..

    Don't stress it. From what I have seen, non dev people have absolute ZERO clue of any technical systems and how they actually work (and I mean ZERO). So don't even worry if you "panic" a bit at first, if you say anything technically sounding of what ideas you have, it just goes in one ear and out the other for them, so don't sweat it.

    You are me and I am you. Exactly this for me as well.
