No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Others can say harsh things, sling insults, or try and treat you with contempt. But this only harms you if you allow it to influence what you think and feel. Be confident in yourself and realize that others will always be jealous and try to drag you down so that they can feel superior. Only you can allow this to happen. Be like a duck in the water and let the slings and arrows fall right off without causing any harm. When someone tries to make you feel small or inferior do not let them get the reaction they are hoping for. Instead just remember that they feel threatened by you and that is why you were targeted. This means you are doing something right and that your success makes them feel small. They are trying to bring you down so that they feel like you are beneath them, and this is a symptom of a small and petty mind. These are not people worthy of your notice and their words have no power to hurt you because they are people who do not really matter in your life.
