25 Quotes About Why No One Can Make You Feel Inferior Without Your Consent

Dr. Nikki Martinez

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Most of you have heard this famous quote, but how many of you really believe the truth of it?

How many of you live by its thought and conviction?

We only have control over ourselves, not what anyone else says or does, but with that self-control, we determine how we are going to let others impact our lives.

We have to ask ourselves about people’s motivation.

Are they trying to offer us helpful and honest feedback?

If that is the case, we should not feel inferior, we should feel like we have been given a key towards growth.

Are the person’s intentions bad?

Are they tearing us down, just to build themselves up?

If we know this is the case, don’t let it bother you, simply let your character, and your work speak for itself.

Do not allow someone to rent space in your head.

Do not give them a seconds thought, if that thought is a negative one.

You choose what you do and do not allow to occupy your mind, so fill it with the positive, and exclude the negative.
