How to Overcome an Inferiority Complex (Video)

“When I was 15 I was constantly tormented by worries and fears and self-consciousness.

I was weak and could never compete with the other boys in baseball or running games…

I was so worried and self-conscious that I dreaded to meet anyone, and I seldom did…

I would have been a failure in life if I had let those worries and fears whip me.

My embarrassment, my fear, was so intense that is it almost impossible to describe it…

Yet shortly after I went to college, four events happened that helped me to overcome my worries and my feeling of inferiority.

One of these events gave me courage and hope and confidence and completely changed the rest of my life…

This is what happened…

    Interesting post. This reminds me so much of a friend who suffered from inferiority complex. It was so bad to the extent that i had to feign my dealings with her, pretending that nothing is wrong, when in fact her lack of self-esteem became worse each passing day.

    Seeing her being pulled down by her insecurities, i thought i should do something fast and came across an article online re methods to overcome the said behaviour. One procedure i followed is to write down her best qualities and let her read it out loud. Of course she already know her good traits but it feels great to have someone acknowledge them. The exercise has worked wonders for her and i feel like i have pulled my friend out of the abyss of inferiority complex.

    I have a personality disorder known as sociopathy but despite of my being anti-social, i enjoyed it to be surrounded by admirers and avoided people who may have something bad to say about me. Have attended several therapy sessions but none of it is helping and i guess not all patient/therapist duos are a good match…i really don’t know but i sure want to see myself finally made a peace with my anxiety.

    I am very sensitive to criticism and always find myself building a wall to hide my flaws. It’s awful to always conceal. What’s to be done ?

    Hi Noah, is excessive showing off considered as inferiority complex ?

    Yes inferiority complex can be treated and mine was through yoga, meditation and being positive. It works !
