“Nobody is as powerful as we make them out to be.”Alice Walker
We constantly compare ourselves to others, often concluding that they have it much better than we do. We spend much of life idolizing people and, in the process, give them power over us. Yet, what’s lost here is the stark truth that other people have just as many insecurities and problems as we do and that, because of this, we could focus on the power we have to be the best versions of who we really are.
According to American novelist Alice Walker, we shouldn’t idolize people and think they are better than us.
It’s important to look up to people who have power over us.
