I would answer, but I am not smart enough to...

Definitely lack some self confidence.

Just have to keep working at it and stop listening to my own negative thoughts...

Now where are the hugs???

You can only post up to 3 emoticons, so be careful or you will get yelled at by the mods...laugh

It is a personal problem I have stemming from a mix of being bipolar and life experiences. So my answer may not be prototypical on how to address it.

Personally, I just have to keep working on my self worth. I have to come to grips with problems out of my control, and finally realize I can do nothing about it and move forward.

Walking helps me lose weight and feel better about my appearance. But that is the least of my problems.

You read books about how to think positive about yourself. It may work for some, but not for me. I have to work on it from within, which is very difficult.

I hope that helps...

thank you for sharing...it helpedhug 3 emoticons are too few for melaugh hug hug hug hug hug hug hug hug hug

what can the mods do me? they love me ( i am their favourite one hahahahole hole grin grin )

the books you are telling me abt are of no help( i doubt they help smb....)

i asked this question coz i do have these inferiority complexes and i am very afraid they are slowly becoming a solid part of my life. I always have the feeling i am not enough good for smth or not enough intelligent etc etc etc and the bad thing is i continuously meet people who think they are simply the best and that makes me wanna hide even moreconfused all this BS happens in real life ( here i feel absolutely ok:)

and i just don't see any solutions...blushing

It's about overcoming weakness with strength. If you are determined enough you can overcome your insecurities. Understand that you will <i><b>never</i></b> be able to please everyone, so just be the person that makes <i>you</i> happy. It's not an overnight thing, but with time you'll understand just how awesome you are/can be and a lot of the inferiority feelings will go away.

No hugs are necessary, lol. :P

hmmm .. not had a problem as such.

But i think the best solution for an inferiority complex is some sort of target achievement in that field. Like if u feel u arent as good as other people in making friends or soicalizing ( just an ex ) ... then try to engage yourself in conversation as in involve yourself with people slowly more than before.

If its something to do with a factor which cannot be changed .. the shape of your nose , the way you look , your voice etc ... these can be improvised or say groomed with care but not changed entirely. Herein i think the person needs a careful evaluation to develop insight in to why he feels that way and how he can overcome it ... like a mental homework almost.

Emmanuella

You have to ask yourself why you feel this way.

Here you are fine, but why are you not with people around you.

Why surround yourself with people who think they are the best?

Have you tried CBT?
