We all have gifts and talents to contribute to the world (you will discover them if you have not yet.) No one has the right to judge our gifts and talents. Maybe we are artists, poets, thinkers, listeners, observers, or maybe we have indefinable abilities not yet valued or understood in our society.
We can feel bad when we compare ourselves to others… there is always someone better looking, smarter or stronger. We forget that there are others who are less fortunate than us in many ways.
The fact is that no one else has your unique combination of gifts, talents, and potential. It is up to each of us to learn to appreciate ourselves; discover the treasures which are inside; and share our treasures with others we choose.
Regardless of anyone’s degree, position, or looks — you have every right to look them in the eye as an equal. You are as important as anyone else.
