Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission --- Eleanor Roosevelt

(Anna) Eleanor Roosevelt was born on October 11, 1884 in New York. Her family called her Eleanor. She was the wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, but won fame in her own right for her humanitarian work, and as a role a model for women in public life. More of her biography can be found in the links below:

Why is she prettier than me? Smarter than me? Stronger than me? Taller than me? Fairer than me? Richer than me?

No one person is the same in this world. We might be similiar in a way or two but we are different. Why allow yourself to feel that others are better than you? There is no one to compare to at all. You are unique! We need to love and be proud of oneself before you can move and acheive more things. Do not belittle yourself thinking that you are not good enough, not attractive enough. We are all different and attractive in our own ways. It's all about how you think at the end of the day. No matter how people view of you, your reaction is the most important of all. Do not let it get you down.

It is not easy to do so as arrogrant people will often throw you bad remarks, lowly glances or even sneers at you. You have to defend and protect yourself. Why allow others to attack you when they are actually powerless towards you. You are bullet-proof to all this as long as if you believe in yourself. See value in yourself.

Ultimately, the sayings goes- you are your worst fear enemy. No one can defeat you except yourself. No one person can make you feel you are not good enough unless you agree to it and stop trying.

Keep trying. We will all move forward, one step a time.
