No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough? I bet you do! I know the feeling. We all doubt ourselves sometimes – it’s human nature. And the really crazy thing is, we think everyone else is doing better than us. But they aren’t.
What’s dreadful is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don’t need love and respect when you do. To lie to yourself and say that everything is OK when it isn’t. Or to convince yourself that you like your work when you know darn well you’re capable of much better.
Bottom line: Love yourself enough to never lower your standards for the wrong reasons. It’s about living honorably. It’s about doing the right thing, no matter what, even when nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not. At the end of the day, your reputation is what other people know about you. Your honor is what you know about yourself.
