menosprezar-se / subestimar-se / limitar-se


Explanation:
Com a devida licença poética:

"Menosprezado, menosprezado
Por que você se menospreza?
Por que você não ouve? Confie em mim
Há um lugar, eu sei onde ele fica
Um lugar onde você poderá se sentir
Sentir que não está sozinho"

"Hold yourself down, hold yourself down
Why d'ya hold yourself down?
Why don't you listen? You can trust me
There's a place I know the way to
A place there is need to feel you
Feel that you're alone"
