No one has the power to belittle you if your heart is full of love and happiness. Only people who are not happy with themselves are mean to others.
People opposes your progress, reminds you of your past failures, belittles you to hide their own insecurity. The only way to stand against such opposition and belittling is to know the reason for your existence.
Never give anyone an approval to upset or belittle you. It is crucial to be self conscious at all times, because with so much going on, you cannot afford to have others incharge of your own life.
So, you should not belittle yourself or see yourself as worse than others because when you disrespect yourself, you allow others to do the same. Do not share your thoughts with people who think that what you are thinking is not worth thinking.
Remember, don’t shrink your standards, link yourself with those who think and ink like you. You can’t force someone to respect you, but you can refuse to be disrespected.
