I think I have lived with imposter syndrome throughout life. I was told that I can't do things which I love. I accepted it, and now everything has become toxic. It'll take some time to eliminate all of the negativity, probably longer than expected. Thank you very much for taking time and writing this all. I find it very helpful.
Impostor Syndrome is, explicitly, an internally generated thing. It's not anyone else telling you you're incapable - it's just thinking you might be, even as you're doing the job.
If anyone else is telling you you can't do the job, then absent any supporting evidence, ignore them.
I am trying to do this these days. Imposter syndrome or the noise coming from outside both have ruined my precious days. I don't see light at the end of tunnel, but I am just sick of the tunnel, and I shall get rid of it.
