Yes that’s right! I will not stoop to your level! I will not degrade my integrity or purpose to be condescending without dignity. Doing things beneath my moral standards will take me there. Certainly, I will not join you on a debased plane just to please you.
The old folks in Mississippi would say, “Don’t bow down to nobody. Only get on your knees to pray.” So, I can stand tall, reach toward the sky, and make progress with you. Lowering my standards is not an option. No, none of us can afford to let our guards down; to let our emotions overrule our intelligence and critical thinking. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
