Hello and welcome to my new series! Quick Quotes is a weekly discussion about a particular quote, Bible verse, or piece of wisdom. I hope that this will give you something to think about and ponder on. So without further ado…. Let’s begin!
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Recently I’ve been dealing with a lot of negative and just plain out mean people. I guess we all deal with that at some point, but I found myself really sinking and getting mad. That’s why this quote is soooooo important. People are going to tell lies, play games, and say really rude things, but at the end of the day that’s their issue. Not allowing other people’s words and actions make you bitter is very hard to do. Rising above that negativity and not letting those people bring you down to their level is the best thing to do. Don’t return fire with fire, it only makes the burn last longer. Turn the other cheek and don’t allow the words of others make you feel bad. It’s not worth being angry or feeling bad about yourself.
Have a wonderful day and remember the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
