Inferiority feelings and class differences

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

One minute you're confident and the next you're feeling inferior

Sam was on his way to work when he saw a man wearing torn clothes and lying on the pavement. Sam told himself ' That's a very poor man; he can't afford to even buy new clothes instead of those torn ones'.

Sam kept on walking until he saw someone driving an old cheap car. Because Sam had a big and expensive car he felt confident confident upon seeing the man driving his old car.

Few minutes later Sam ran into a guy of his age driving a very big luxurious car. Sam instantly looked at the ground and felt a bit inferior.

Comparison and inferiority feelings

What happened here? Why did Sam suddenly feel inferior despite feeling confident few minutes earlier? This happened because sam's subconscious mind has the bad habit of comparing him to others.

Whenever Sam meets or sees others his mind automatically starts comparing him to them. Sam usually compares himself to people of lower social class and feels good about himself, but because this is the way his mind was programmed to think he feels inferior whenever he meets someone from a higher social class than himself.

How can Sam feel confident all the time?

Your mind can't contradict itself. If you kept thinking that you are better than other people then certainly you will come across people who appear better than you and you will feel inferior as a result.

If you take part in the comparison game then you have to understand that its a double-edged swords and I'm sure you don't want to feel inferior at any point of your life.

The solution is to forget about that comparison habit. Respect the poor and the rich, respect the C class and the A class citizens. Only then you will feel confident all the time, even in the presence of the president of the United States you will never feel inferior because your mind won't make any comparisons.

Ignoring your inferiority complex instead of taking strong actions to deal it might result in depression. In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression i explained how ignoring your problems can result in suppressed emotions which in turn lead to depression.

Every time you will feel inferior without taking actions to combat these feelings your emotions will become suppressed and you may end up depressed. As soon as you encounter a situation that makes you feel inferior start taking actions in order to prevent depression.
