Quoting from wikipedia:
Fortunately though, it did not last very long. As I grew up, the feeling of inferiority went away. Thanks to my family and friends. =p My mom had me joined the ‘Lyre & Drum’ org when I was still in elementary so that I can become more sociable and I absolutely agree that it did help in my personality development and character building which are necessary in a child’s formative years. I used to have a crook teeth (2 front teeth) back then, coz oh boy how I hate dentists! I even had a classmate who’d call me ‘bampira‘ (vampire!) Imagine, how cruel but now we just laugh it of. My sisters were to the rescue at that time, one confronted my classmate and talked to his mother and one dragged me to the dentist every Saturday. In trying to boost my confidence my mom even bought me Nintendo Family Computer from her money saved-the-hard-way. ( okay i feel guilty now =[ )
As I said, thanks to my friends, family and to Him, my ‘inferiority complex’ slowly disappeared as I add more numbers to my age. Sometimes, it still haunts me but now is different. I can handle it already and I can even fight it back. =)
Maybe on our next ride, I’ll share how I personally battle my once thought mere shyness, but actually an ‘inferiority complex’. Not anymore of the struggles, I’d like the conquering/vanishing part! =p
Good Monday everyone!
PS: Come to think of it, my classmate is wrong, he should have called me something with a resemblance with ‘rat’ or ‘rabbit’ since I have 2 (used to be crooked) large front teeth (just like Bro Bo!), instead of vampires which have pangils. LOL. =p
