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

"... 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" ?

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
