This has to be one of my favorite quotes, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” The reason that it resonates so deeply with me is because ….well, it is true. You will have people in your life that will try and make you feel like you are less than what you are. They will attempt to make you feel dumb, ugly, worthless, you name it and it will be done to you. It is really sad, but unless you live in a Disney movie this is just part of life….The trick is that you have the power to stop it. No, I am not saying you can stop THEM, but you can stop their words or actions from affecting you.
It is a hard thing to do but you can do it. When someone starts to make you question who you are, or makes you feel bad about yourself remember that this is just their own insecurities in action. They may feel insecure and the only way they can feel better is by making someone else feel worse than they do. So what do you do when this happens? Remember that their words are not a reflection of you, but of them. Remind yourself of how wonderful you are and do not pay attention to what they are saying. Do not give them the power to make you feel badly about yourself.
No one has the right to speak to you in a negative fashion. Sometimes you will have to bite your tongue and walk away, other times you need to speak. It may seem hard to know which one to choose, but the first thing you have to realize is that you are important and you matter. No one has power over your, nor should they. If they want to rant then let them, but do not allow them to feel like you are nothing. Their anger has everything to do with their own personal struggles and not with you. Do not let anyone ever make you feel horrible just because they themselves feel horrible.
Keep being Amazeballs! You Rock!
