“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
Today for Colleen and Ron’s Writer’s quote Wednesday writing challenge, we are given the theme of wisdom. I think the above quote is so relevant to me and many others. We are so quick to put ourselves down or downplay our achievements as we feel that others have done so much better, and therefore we could never match up. This is my take on it:
I know that I have a bit of a complex
It is probably because I am shy
I worry that people think I am standoffish
Because I stand silently by
At many a social occasion
When everyone’s chatting away
I am desperately trying
To think of something to say
I don’t live in a fancy residence
I don’t drive the trendiest car
I am not a brilliant genius
I feel that I am below par
But wait, who says I’m not worth it?
It is me that causes myself grief
I need to forget about others
And work on my own self-belief!
