The key to feeling good is up to you, it is a matter of how you allow peoples definitons of you mark you as a person.
We build these walls around us, and some of them are overdue. Take a look around you and make sure that your walls have doors for the feelgood people. You can allow yourself to admire someone, but remember that they are not necessarily those who should be allowed to define you as a person. Protect the you that you love and fill your you with feedback from the ones who actually make your you feel good.
Don’t let the “superior” scare you, and never allow them to make you feel small. If any emotions at all, let there be pity. Pity the ones who are too small to allow you to feel big and good about yourself.Make your heart a spacy one with room for them all, and save the little door for those who actually expand the space in your soul. It is amazing how many people a small space can room if they are open to share 🙂
