DEALING WITH INFERIORITY COMPLEX.
I’m too skinny, I’m too fat, I’m ugly, I hate my hair, I hate my skin color, I hate my eyes, I hate my nose, I don’t perform well in examinations, I always experience criticism, my opinions don’t matter, I’m too short, when I post pictures on social media, I don’t get so much comments and likes the way my friends do.
Many people make these comments or similar comments each day. We allow these little things grow and develop into this four letter word called fear and the feeling of insecurity comes in. I must admit, we all have insecurities but the question now is, how do you deal with your insecurities? Do you allow these insecurities define you? Do you worry so much about your insecurities?
When you worry so much about your insecurities, you may find yourself making statements like; I wish I could be like him/her, he/she is better than I am, I hate myself. This is comparison creeping into your life. Comparing yourself to other people means insulting yourself.
Gradually, inferiority complex comes in and you start thinking other people are better than you are or they are superior to you. Your self-worth and self-esteem diminish.
Even when complimented, you refuse to listen because it is inconsistent with your interior feelings. People with an inferiority complex believe others have the same feelings about them.
However, I have good news for you. You can overcome an inferiority complex.
- You have to love yourself, accept who you are and make peace with yourself.
- Push negative thoughts out of your head and mind.
- When people criticise you, don’t let it get to you and always remember that nobody is above criticism.
- Don’t worry too much about your insecurities. Tell yourself nobody is perfect and you are special in your own way because there is nobody else like you. Therefore, you are unique.
Overcoming inferiority complex can be a little difficult. Feel free to reach out to someone If you can’t fight it alone. There is always help out there, believe me.
