Struggling with Anxiety & Inferiority Feelings

03 May, 2023
Q For about 3 years now I’ve been struggling with anxiety. I have always felt I’m lesser than everyone and I always end up pushing people away. I pushed all my friends and family members away because of my mental health. I lack social communication skills and people always get this idea I’m rude and ignorant. I could take the longest route to not go through other human beings just me here typing this I’m worried someone will see it.


Anxiety can reach a point where it’s crippling and takes so much from your life.

It interferes with your daily functioning and isolates you from others.

When you feel that things are not going well and you start losing control, turn to a therapist or GP for assessment.

Whether it is depression or anxiety, they are going to help you find the reasons behind it.

Feeling less than others is not a default mode; you can learn to think better about yourself.
