I am confused whether I have inferiority complex or I'm just shy. I have a difficulty relating to other people and I only have few friends. I am born shy and not so friendly and whenever I get to meet other people I think that I am inferior to them, that I'm not as good-looking as them, and I'm afraid they're not gonna accept me for who I am. I know that I have this dilemma and I have struggled all my life but I think I need more advice.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You should learn to accept how you are as every person is unique in his/her own way. Count your good qualities and try to mingle with people. If needed, you can also consider getting counseling/psychological consultation done to help with coping up with your feelings. Take help from friends and family members to come out of the problem.
