“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
I like this quote. I connect with it.
“But this quote is victim blaming!” you cry. “It allows others to treat you badly because you consent to it!”
Not to me. To me, it’s a mantra of strength. “I am not inferior,” I tell myself when there’s doubt. “I am not a victim. No one can place their control over me. My mind is my own, and my mind is saying ‘no.’”
No one can make me feel inferior without my consent. Whenever I am afraid, I remind myself this: I am equal. I am equal. And so I tilt my chin up and meet the world as an equal.
No one can make me feel inferior without my consent. Never again.
