I am 52. I am very talented in my field and have been very successful. I have always had a little voice inside telling me my success was luck. It wasn't real. I will have to try harder to succeed next time because I may not be so lucky. That's my scared child. I don't know how to help her yet but I working on that. My adult self knows the truth and pushes my inner child away further abandoning her and setting up scenarios for others to also abandon her. I live with constant emotional pain, sadness, and anxiety. I am no longer able to push it away.
