Como dizer "Não significa que você é menos" em inglês

I didn't find anything in dictionaries, but I realized English native speakers use the expression "less of a person", as in:

"... It doesn't mean you are less of a person".

Would it be correct to use that expression to mean "não significa que você é menos" ?

"less of a person" it´s okay to use, others possibilities and examples:

It doesn't make you less of a person or worse of a person.

Whatever the reason, you're not less of a person than anybody else because of your choices.

It shows you that having less money doesn't make you less of a person.

It made you feel less of a person.

But it doesn't make me any less of a person.
(That is, it doesn't make me of lower importance, rank, than others - or all others).

In novels and informal ways, one could state that " doesn't make me a nobody". But in a black-and-white context, that of winner-loser that Americans are fond of in novel writing - like in the descriptions made in e.g., Lipstick Jungle. That is, you are "in" or "out", little room to shades of gray...

One more to the table:
Whether you struggle with dieting, emotinal struggles, financially, learning, your goals (what you have - anything), don´t let outside noise make you feel less worthy .
Donb´t let anyone tell you that you are not worthy because you don´t own certain things or don´t have special traits
