Without Your Consent.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Eleanor Roosevelt
Fearful Face on Apple iOS 14.6

Although, I’m putting the quote through I don’t fully agree with it.

It all depends on one’s station and position in life as to whether those with authority over them can make them feel inferior.

Children are sometimes made feel inferior by adults without their consent.

Women are often made feel inferior without their consent.

Minorities are often made feel inferior without their consent.

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  2. I agree, but….. (ikr). I agree with you that it’s not that simple. I also think that I don’t have to remain in that space of feeling inferior. But it’s hard as hell to pull yourself out when the whole damn world thinks that’s where you belong.

    • But it’s hard as hell to pull yourself out when the whole damn world thinks that’s where you belong.

      Yes, mental conditioning can be a powerful thing, but it doesn’t have to rule a person’s life once they reach an age of maturity to realize something is seriously missing in the soul of those who strive on the inferior feelings of others.

      However if the oppressed person isn’t facing any overwhelming legal confinement, forced obstruction or systematic racism or sexism, it’s possible to recondition how one feels about themselves. People who have forced in servitude positions does it all the time. They convince themselves that their own opinion of themselves are all that matters. Anyone else opinion is irrelevant. But this doesn’t happen over night. People sometime work for years on their inferior complex. An inferiority complex is frequently traced to abusive or negative childhood experiences, the effects of which can persist well into adulthood.

        • I try to read everyone’s bio when I visit their blog. What’s most important is what you think of you. 🙂

          • Oh you know what I mean. We are a unique subset of the population. Often people don’t understand what we’ve lived through and tend to minimize it.

            • As a former teacher I encountered this a lot during my teaching tenures: Students whose self-esteems had been obliterated by whomever. I never tried to minimize it but I refused to let my students accept what others thought of them. What others said about them. I always emphasize their own opinion of themselves is what mattered. Often times the abuser had been abused themselves and that’s the only way they knew how to interact with others. I taught my students they have recognize secondary abuse and not become a victim of it themselves.

              Now, when dealing with systematic racism and sexism this approach doesn’t always work as well because these forms of oppression are constant and chronic.

  3. I think what she is saying is that it is how we respond to it that makes the difference. BUT, as you say, children believe what they are told and don’t know the difference, and people of different races and cultures often misunderstand each other or act deliberately rude to each other.
