Killing That Nagging Sense of Inferiority(2)

Many of us are plagued bNagging sense of inferiorityy a nagging sense of inferiority. This erosive feeling is especially prominent in our twenties and thirties.   

As we look into the mirror each day, we see faults in our facial structure. Our noses are too big. Our eyes are too widely spaced or too narrowly set. Our hair is thinning or graying. The color isn’t quite right. Our skin is blemished. We are too short or too tall, too fat or too thin. We aren’t as smart as we’d like. A few more IQ points would be helpful. Or, our memories aren’t as good as others. We haven’t accomplished our goals and lack the money our siblings or friends are making. We don’t manage our time well. We aren’t as athletic as others. The list goes on... 

These “inadequacies” create a sense of inferiority. We feel less than whole, flawed, and discontented. 

 One of the things I’ve learned in life is that with age, all these things become less and less important. We begin to overlook them, ignore them, or, better yet, just forget about them. 



As a result, we become more and more comfortable with our bodies and who we are, what we have accomplished in life, or what we haven’t managed to complete.  We begin to live life more fully, less encumbered by those things that burdened us for many years.
