#37 No One Can Make You Feel Inferior...

Eleanor Roosevelt said “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”. This week we take a deep dive into this quote and really begin to uncover why this is true. People say things and we feel all different feelings based on what they said, but it is not what they said, but how we think about what they said, that makes us feel a certain way. Take out your Mental Mat and get ready to stretch your mind!
