“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt was a wise woman who inspired many during her life and after her death. While there are many to pick from, one of my favorite Roosevelt quotes is: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
It is so easy to let the opinions of others matter more than they should, the only thing that gives someone else’s opinion true weight is you. If you can find a way to ignore the negative opinion of others, think how much better your life would be. Take it from me, it’s much easier said than done, but that is why Roosevelt’s words are so important.
Every morning, look in the mirror and tell yourself, “no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.’ You won’t believe how much better you feel when you start to accept that small, simple truth.
Oh, and by the way, you’re kind of amazing… try to remember that!
