Dare to change, to overcome your feeling of inferiority and regain self-confidence!Updated on January 22, 2021, Seytoo
It is normal for a human being to sometimes feel a feeling of inferiority, especially when he cannot keep up with the trends of the day. However, if because of this he belittles himself even more, to the point of losing all his self-esteem, he is blocking himself. This will prevent him from progressing in life and from making plans for the future. The inferiority complex is a personality disorder that must be overcome.
The fact of feeling inferior to others is a destructive feeling.
A person with a feeling of inferiority tends to have negative judgment or a low opinion of themselves. When she does something, she is unsure of herself and is convinced that she is not up to it. She feels like she doesn't deserve her place and is invisible and useless. She tends to blame herself for being disadvantaged physically, intellectually, or materially. It is quite normal for a human being to notice his weaknesses or flaws, but the feeling of inferiority, if given too much importance, prevents personal self-development and adaptation to social life.
How do you get rid of your feeling of inferiority?
To overcome the feeling of being inferior, you usually have to put aside all prejudices and step out of your little cocoon, and open up to the world. But, if this feeling is deeply ingrained within an individual, therapy would be necessary. With the help of a psychologist, he can revisit his childhood and adolescence to determine the repressed causes of the feeling of inferiority. For example, he may find that his low self-esteem is the result of his family being always treated as good-for-nothing. This will allow him to pull himself together, not letting others tell him how he should be, and to take control of his life.
How to regain your self-confidence?
You can regain your self-confidence by:
- Stopping to constantly listing your faults
- Complimenting yourself; and
- Learning to highlight your qualities.
Look at yourself in the mirror and try to determine what makes you charming. Remember the compliments that have already been, and will continue to be, addressed to you. Tell yourself that others do not see you as you see yourself because your feelings of inferiority are very often the result of a priori on the eyes of others. Revisit your personal journey; reflect on your failures to find rational explanations. Also appreciate your successes, your greatest accomplishments and your fondest memories. Try to remember how you went about getting good results.
Avoid bad comparisons.
There is no point in constantly comparing yourself to the stereotypes of the ideal male or female conveyed by the media, advertising and the fashion world. These images are far from reality and do not take into account that no one is alike.
Look around you, and observe:
- Your relatives;
- Your associates;
- People of your age or from the same social background as you.
You will see that the real world is very different, that no one is perfect, and that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. By multiplying your connections, you will know the little worries and weaknesses of those around you. In addition, stop identifying yourself almost systematically with others, especially your parents or your siblings.
Dare to change.
You can get rid of some of your flaws, or at least hide them, if that would help you overcome your feeling of inferiority. Don't hesitate to hire a professional to help you get a makeover and look your best. If you can afford it, you might even consider cosmetic surgery. Also, change your behavior; do no longer be afraid to assert yourself and take responsibility.
No matter what challenges you set on yourself, never tell yourself again that you have tried without success or that you will never succeed. Know that it is by making mistakes that you gain experience. Finally, to be motivated, whatever you undertake, be convinced that it will be successful.
