Most of us fear that someone will challenge our right to be a certain way, to be able to do a certain thing. What will people think if they find out we are “ordinary” human beings? What others think does not count for much. It is what we think about ourselves and God; and what we tell ourselves that make all the difference.
Of course we are ordinary–why shouldn’t we be? What is wrong with being just an ordinarily good person? Who can dare suggest there is something wrong with having respect for ourselves? So, think well of yourself, live your life well — and let others think what they want!
