Informed Consent

by Kris Pitcher

  "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

We spend a lot of time focused on what other people think. And we spend even more time making other people accountable for how we feel. Really though, we own our feelings. We are accountable. 

I'm beautiful & confident!
If we are clear about what we know about ourselves, other people don't have the power to make us question...to make us believe in their word over our own. It's clarity in self which makes Eleanor's statement so true. It's our own self-doubt, our consent, which allows others to make us feel inferior.

As we drift away from our priorities, our values and our goals we become disconnected with our sense of self. We lose clarity on who and what we are...things get fuzzy. We are more easily influenced by others, maybe by messages we don't care for.

Take back your informed consent. Reconnect with your priorities to gain clarity with your sense of self. You own how you feel. The decision to be accountable is yours.
