Since I decided to write an article on this, I might as well share my experience regarding it. Feeling like you aren’t good enough isn’t as petty as most people would think. It isn’t something that people can just fix with an encouraging statement like, ‘You’re amazing!’. Personally, for me, it felt like holding back on a lot of opportunities out of fear that I’d only humiliate myself if I took part in them.
If you’re like me, then the feeling probably isn’t associated with a severe case of depression (Lord, help anyone for whom it might be), it’s associated with a mindset that we develop where a particular situation is played out in a specific way and the pressure that comes from it makes you stand back out of fear that you can’t do it right.
1. It’s pretty hard to comprehend.
It might sound like it’s only related to activities and sports etc. but it can be many situations which may include these as well. Anyone who’s never felt this way might be thinking that this isn’t a big deal and that the person should just be more confident or something. I am genuinely happy for anyone who has never felt that way but the truth is that you have no idea what it’s like. I guess I can’t really explain it that well in words so people might feel like it’s petty but honestly, no one can ever explain it in words that would clearly indicate how they’re feeling because no such words have been introduced yet.
