The other responses are spot on! Write your own story instead of trying to fit into the version you feel others have for you (including society). The more at-ease and happy you are in your job, the better you’ll perform at it.

Finding Joy on the Job

It sounds like your anxiety is interfering with your job search and your personal happiness. (I see the signs, because I have anxiety myself. Feeling like you only meet minimum requirements for everything so you must not be qualified or able to do that job well, for instance.) Your anxiety may be strong enough that it needs to be treated as well. It can be a wall between you and any self-confidence.
