No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. — Eleanor Roosevelt

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. - Eleanor Roosevelt

This is a line from "The Princess Diaries", it comes from the mouth of former US President Roosevelt.

So, do you feel inferior?

Inferiority refers to the emotional experience caused by underestimating oneself when compared with others.

So, do you often compare yourself with others and see what you don’t have, what you lack, what you don’t have enough, and what you’re not good at, and thus underestimate yourself? Look down on yourself, so you can't look up?

The princess in "The Princess Diaries" also has low self-esteem. She is a transparent person among her classmates, and she is even ignored to the extent that others can't see her, and then sit on her! Therefore, she is also very "self-aware" - "I just want to hide in the crowd, and I'm very good at this."

So, the question is, why do you think this Cinderella before she became a princess has low self-esteem?

Ugly? Maverick? (A lot of times, the maverick of many people is just a manifestation of inferiority, using alternative personality expressions to cover up the loss of being rejected by the collective.) No money? Bad family background? Poor academic performance? Are other students deliberately making things difficult and suppressing?

However, you are good-looking, you are integrated into the group, you are rich, you have a solid family background, you study super well, you get along well with all your classmates, and you have confidence?

not necessarily.

Cinderella, after "recognizing her relatives with blood" overnight, changed her body and became a princess of a certain country. She had a queen grandmother, and she underwent a major transformation in her image. All the students in the school wanted to be her best. friend. But is she confident? No, she still has low self-esteem, even she wants to give up her identity as a princess, she still wants to live a transparent life before.

This reminds me of an article I read before, but I searched for a long time and couldn't find the original text. It roughly means this: Only when you find your true destiny will you have true peace and calm.

In fact, I don't think the opposite of inferiority is self-confidence, I think the opposite of inferiority is neither humble nor arrogant, it is true peace and calm - I know who I am, I know what I want to do, the world can't define me, and I don't care I don't compare other people's evaluations with others. What I pursue is not human vision, but the purpose I was created for.

Often inside and outside the church, I hear a slogan: I was originally a prince/princess in the sky, and I am temporarily unrestrained in the world. Although the slogan is so called, do you really know and agree that you are a prince/princess? Or, just for the fun of it, do you still think you are a piece of garbage in your heart? If that's the case, then unfortunately to tell you that although God sees you as a prince/princess, if you think you are a rubbish, you will still be a rubbish. Like Cinderella after becoming a princess, even though everyone respects her as a princess, she still feels like a Cinderella (to be a princess, you have to believe that you are a princess).

That line says that no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. In other words, if you feel inferior, it is your own fault, you are making yourself inferior.

Therefore, people whose material life is improving day by day, do you want to improve the quality of spiritual life? Take a moment, discuss it with God, and explore, are you a prince/princess in heaven? Should you lower your noble head to this glitzy world under God? Who should define your value?

    I was dragged by my sister back then, but now I think it's not bad to be able to shoot chick-flick so small and fresh
