    Have you ever felt inferior?

    I have felt inferior for most of my life, and now it's time I did something about it. What do you think is a good course of action?

    Sure everyone has their moments both the mighty and the not so mighty.

    Of course I have felt inferior in the past and somtimes now... But, when I recognize that feeling for what it is, I shake myself and remember who I am.

    The only way to overcome the feeling of inferiority is to find out who you really are. In Christ you are the child of the King. You are somebody independent of your past, your failures, your perceptions and all that others have said about you.

    So, if you have not received Jesus Chirst as your personal Lord and Savior according to Romans 10:9&10, now is the time to do so.

    The scripture says, That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Because....with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    Just pray this simple prayer, "Dear God, I come to you recognizing that I am a sinner in need of salvation. I believe that Jesus is the son of God, that He died for me and that he was raised from the dead. Jesus, come into my heart. I receive you now as my Lord and Savior and according to your Word, I am now saved... Thank you Father for saving me, in Jesus Name."

    You will have the biggest battle of your life, but recognize that it is just that, a battle. The devil will be mad and will bombard you with thoughts of worthlessness, but if you will get in the Word of God and fight back by prayer and speaking the Word, you will be victorious.

    Find a church that teaches you who you are in Christ. You are not some pitiful, nobody. You have power and authority and confidence that has been given to you by the Lord....You are sombody but you will have to fight to maintain your stance.

    Every Christian is equally loved and valued by the Lord. No matter what you think of yourself, God has already made His declaration about you. Do you know who you are? read more

    Very often I felt inferior. Then one step at a time I'm changing. The first thing I did was look for someone who could help me, to talk to, openly. The only fact of talking to someone was already an help. Then this person accompanied me to act and helped to see others as resources from which to draw without fear of confrontation

    Probably everyone has felt that at one time or another. But I believe confidence is something you are entitled to and can step forward and claim for yourself. I am not talking about arrogance, just the simple knowledge that you are worthy of respect and better or worse than no one else.

    Yes, I have felt inferior before.  Start by not comparing yourself to anyone else in this world.  Get in touch with yourself -- who you are.  I always encourage people to take Personality Test and Strengths Finder 2.0 -- these tools and information will build your confidence. 
    Remember that there is no right or wrong answer about who you are.  Stop trying to be who you are not and be who you are.  Everything about you is special! -- Take advantage of yourself!  I am glad you brought this question forward.

    Oh, yes I felt so. And still feel so sometimes. But it´s only made by the little voice between my ears. And because it´s made in me I can handle it and even change it.

    I have felt inferior about myself before. I am Asian therefore i get a lot of crap about our driving skills, how our eyes look, and our sexual life, but Ive learned to move past that. Dr.Seus  (i think...) had an amazing quote that I love and it has helped me:
    "Whoever cares, doesn't matter. Whoever matters, doesn't care."
    Now I'm not sure if thats word for word but you get the idea.

    When I don't do wrong but I see cunning and clever people all around me and they judge you according to their status, I feel inferority sometime. Soon I find out that I am mistaken even then when I do not find no one who could stand with me I really feal inferior.

    Never inferior, but humbled... a lot of times.

    When it comes to individual abilities, traits, skills (or any number of other, individiual, things in life) etc. - sure.  I don't just "feel" inferior.  I know, for a fact, that I AM inferior when it comes to a whole lot of things in life. 

    When it comes to "as a worthwhile and/or good person" - never.  I don't see myself as superior to other "worthwhile and good people", but I don't feel inferior to anyone else either.
