“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”

-Eleanor Roosevelt

No one can make you feel bad about yourself without you giving your permission to allow the bad feeling in.  Each one of us is the gatekeeper to our own mind and we can learn to be aware of the messages around us and stop the messages at the gate and not let them in.  Ponder that in your life if you are suffering from depression, low self esteem, raw feelings from a break up. As you habitually let a bad thought in, a memory of something nasty someone said about you.. practice observing that thought and become aware that the thought is separate from you and it is not essentially who you are.  As you begin to notice this, you gain the grown up autonomy to choose, to decide what you will let in and what you will not.   (Day 1)
