A few words of wisdom

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

This is one of my favorite quotes of all time. I first heard this quote in The Princess Diaries and I've been living with that mentality ever since. Because I wholeheartedly believe in this. I've come across people in different stages of my life who have super egos, who treat people like shit to exert their authority and dominance. You know what I've learned? Never let anyone treat you like shit! I find myself reminding people to not let anyone mistreat / abuse / belittle them and never take anything personally. I think over the years, I've learned to build a thick skin and I thank my life experiences for it. You can't control how people treat you, but you can control how you react to it.

Thank you Eleanor Roosevelt for your wisdom. She was a spectacular lady and I truly respect and admire her contribution to society. Your wisdom will stay close to my heart.
