I often feel unqualified at work. I don't know stuff that I need to know. I can't figure things out. I make mistakes.

But it is often true that the people around me aren't expecting me to know as much as I'm expecting me to know. It is OK with them if I have to ask some questions of other people. It is OK if it takes a little time for me to figure something out. My expectations are MUCH higher than theirs.

What have your performance reviews said? Have they said that you are incompetent? If they don't say that, then they don't think that you are.

Is your job flexible enough to allow you to do "easy" things on a day when you don't have as much confidence, and save the "hard" stuff for another day?

Be nice to yourself.
