My Favorite Quote:

"No one can make you feel inferior without your permission." --Eleanor Roosevelt

I think that works for more than just inferiority too.  I apply the same concept to anger, jealousy, and embarrassment as well.

Cheerleader22 you are thinking what i am - def. a quote to live by, thank you for sharing

I think thats an excellent strategy!I hope u dnt mind if i use that hahaha!

Ah, but that's the point. It's not about the other person. It's about your response to them. It doesn't matter what they may say or do, you are the one who controls the way you feel about it.

Eleanor, must have had a limited amount of experience with people who excel at making other feel inferior... like drill sargents, or perfect spellers, or .. well that's my list.<br />

OK, so I don't fall into feeling inferior very much.

Great quote, I think i'll start living by that. Thanks :)

i remember studying this in my english class- that quote is the embodiment of existentialism.
