  1. This is an excellent observation, Lucile: thanks for sharing it with us! The words “inferiority complex” used to be tossed about a lot (I’ve never taken a psychology course, so maybe I shouldn’t use the phrase myself). Eleanor Roosevelt’s statement makes me aware of my own complicity in feeling inferior.

  2. I’ve come across this quote many times over as many years, and it always strikes me as so profound and oh so true. I’ve thought about this quote several times since leaving a job over a year ago due to complete burnout. The department I worked in was extremely toxic, and I thought when I first left that I had let those people make me feel inferior. In hindsight and with some healing, I realize I didn’t let them do that, but I realized I deserved to be treated better. Thank you for sharing. It is a quote you can never read too many times.

    1. Join me on that. This quote is timeless and has been close to me for some years.
      I also relate to it due to an experience at work in the past; unlike you, I let someone take my power way from me – this quote helps me never allowing that to happen again.
      And also to remember that some people cross our pathts to teach us never to behave like them.
      So, two lessons learned.
      Thanks for visiting and sharing.
      I owe you a penny! 😉

  3. Such a meaningful quote. How we feel is a personal choice. Sure, sometimes someone might say something that we don’t agree with and insult us. But we have to remind ourselves that everyone has their own opinion, and we should accept that and move on. And be happy 🙂
