Complex is hard word to define in my head. Inferiority complex is even harder to understand. Here’s how I understand it: ke kmal ngarbab a skulem, edirke ngesonges le sel bechachau ra chelsel a rengum a dmolch. Ea skuul ma ilteet ma kerruul a diak el sebechel el mekekii. So we ask why? That’s where complexity is – find out the why and you find the answer to your you. Even those el kmal mekedung adi kaiuechit e ketmall. How can you tell? When you begin to make sense of your life you will encounter harsh judgment in who you are, and what you are. Most of the time it’s the voices in your head. E remurt a klechechei – envy and jealousy because of shame and fear of inadequacy. Why they can’t see their fear and shame of inferiority? Because it is wrapped in superiority complex. See how complex it is! We are fearfully and wonderfully made, we can’t really comprehend our own soul.
It’s a real battle between the mind and the heart and the enemy of the good. We can exercise triangulation and be neither nor because we fear rejection. But that’s self-deception.
Experts tell us that “An inferiority complex encompasses feelings of inadequacy or inferiority. These feelings may result from an actual physical defect, or they may show up in situations where we feel less intelligent than our peers. In other cases, the supposed inferiority may be concocted from purely imagined shortcomings.”
I have seen others diagnose other people’s illness to make themselves superior and make the one with health issues inferior. Sometimes inferiority is being unhappy because a colleague got a promotion over you, or even feeling sad after making a low score on a classwide test—these are expected, and even healthy reactions to disappointments and are usually nothing to worry about.
With this complex, however, it isn’t uncommon for a person to escape by withdrawing in the presence of others that make her feel insufficient. In another scene, such a person may attempt to overcompensate for whatever they think is their deficiency and become excessively competitive.
An inferiority complex is most likely the outcome of one or a combination of many things. One being our childhood experiences.
Everything I write here is basically from experiences in my healing journey. First thing first: SELF ACCEPTANCE.
Take a careful and brutal assessment of your own soul. Name each strength, each weakness, and your fear (what/who threatens you) and look for your diamond in the rough – Your opportunity to learn and grow.
