Where I choose not to expand.

It is often quite easy to misinterpret what someone is saying, if you aren’t paying close enough attention. One word can make all the difference. For example, there is a huge difference between;

I feel like I’m not good enough for you.


I feel like you don’t think I’m good enough for you.

It means the difference between an Inferiority Complex and Insecurity. Yes, the latter may breed the former, however the reasons and experiences are different. The choices are different.

There is fear in both. A constant, aching fear of loss. An inevitable betrayal. Inferiority Complex embraces the blame and faults themselves. Insecurity feels helpless. Why? Well, if you aren’t careful, you would be quick to think it’s for the same reasons as its opposite. Both are afraid their source of love is going to move on to another. Both are afraid it will find something new.

But where Inferiority Complex raises their source of love above themselves, Insecurity knows they are equal. Insecurity accepts that no matter how hard they try – and oh how hard they have tried – their source of love is always looking elsewhere, and it will find blame where blame is not due. Mistakes will be repeated and Insecurity will be too easy to let go.

“No experience is a cause of success or failure.
We do not suffer from the shock of our experiences, so-called trauma –
but we make out of them just what suits our purposes.”

Inferiority Complex lacks trust in themselves, whereas Insecurity lacks trust in others. Plain and simple.
