Into the A+ Advice Box #56: IMPOSTER SYNDROME, SELF-SABOTAGE, and SELF-DOUBT

Welcome to the 56th edition of Into the A+ Advice Box, in which we answer all the queer and lesbian advice questions from A+ members who submitted their queries into our A+ ask box! Here, we answer your questions in a space just for A+ members, safe from the general public. (No guarantees regarding your ex, however.) Here, the Autostraddle team’s doling out advice on everything from sex and relationships, to friend and family dynamics, career questions, style, and more! We’re doing this column TWICE a month, now.

Every SECOND A+ Advice box of the month is themed, like this one! THIS month’s theme is IMPOSTER SYNDROME, SELF-DOUBT AND SELF-SABOTAGE (Yes, all 3), in honor of Autostraddle's 13th birthday month! The general Into the A+ Advice Box, where we take questions on practically any topic, publishes on the first Friday of each month, and you can send questions on any topic, at any time.

We're curious. What themed advice boxes would YOU like to see? Let us know in the comments!

You've Reached A+ Content!

Autostraddle cannot survive without reader support. That's why we have our A+ Member program, where readers like you keep Autostraddle here for our whole community.

A+ members keep this site majority free-to-read, so sometimes we have bonus content for members as thanks! A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year. If you can, will you join? You get access to bonus content like this post, insider information, behind-the-scenes laughs, and the singular satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to pay it forward for other readers and that you're keeping this bastion of queerness on the internet here for everyone.

99% of our readers do not support. That means that less than 1% of our readers are keeping this site running. Will YOU be one of the people who helps to keep this indie queer media site here for everyone?

We don't need one person to do it all, we need many people each doing a part. Every member makes a difference!
