“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
So please change your attitude to a positive, nice one and focus on: educating yourself. You have the power to keep away from negative thoughts that diminish others. You don't have all the information, don't forget that! Be the one who highlights others strengths and see how that can change other people perceptions. If you leave a good seed, there is a very good chance that you can contribute to others positive thoughts and attitudes. And your confidence will grow because you will feel proud at the end of the day. Be the positive influence and grow your self esteem!
