Repeat after me:
-I WILL care less about what people think of me
-I WILL do what is necessary to get to where I want to be 
-I WILL believe in myself 
-I WILL continue to shine

When I was very young and I had my mother with me, all I can hear was praises and compliments telling me how special, blessed and talented I am. People talk about me and bet on what I will be when I grow up. I almost believed them when they said that I will be somebody someday. 

The winds changed after my mother's passing. I started hearing nothing but bad from people. Every move I make had to be criticized. I was painfully misunderstood. You expect people of older age to be kinder. After all they've seen a lot and should know better, you expect them to have a broader mind but only few do. Most of them are immature, envious and unhappy with their lives so they want to pick on someone who still has a chance at a brighter future than them, someone they cannot be, and in that case, they saw me. 

They were trying to dull my spirit and take away my confidence. I saw that then, I just didn't understand why. With every move they intend to make my life as miserable as they can. And now that I've come of age, I understood how people can sometimes be so apathetic, unreasonable and immature. I feel so sorry for myself for letting those people step on me, a poor naive child back then. 

Fortunately God blessed me with a unique spirit, giving me the confidence I need even in those times that people looked at me like a rag and stepped on my toes. 

In my favorite poem you will read these "People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered: Forgive them anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. "

I don't even look that happy and I just lost my mother how could older people ever treat me that way? Who are they to treat me of no value? Who are these people to make a poor child feel so inferior? Why would they dedicate their lives on ruining others' rather than fixing their own?

If you are unhappy with yourself and with your life, why drag other innocent people in your unhappiness?

Happiness of sane people do not come from harming others on stepping on their feet. The way you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you, as a saying goes.

Looking back at how people treated me then, I feel so sorry for them and for myself. They might be old but they haven't learned a single thing from life. They don't know the meaning of the words "empathy" and "consideration".

And as for myself I can only say one thing: "I should have never let them make me feel inferior." I know I did make it through those years still believing in myself but then there were times I thought I couldn't make it, I doubted my strength. And I tried and tried so hard to be a better me and prove myself so that people would look up on me and hoping I was going to be respected even a little but they never changed. I then understood, it was not me that was the problem, it was them.

Sorry, I wasn't born into this world to be your rag and to be mocked by anyone. You tried to take my confidence and my freedom away but uh uh NO MORE!!!

They can say 
Anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I will not allow anyone to succeed hanging clouds over me

And they can try 
Hard to make me feel that I, 
Don't matter at all,
But I refuse to falter in what I believe or lose faith in my dreams

'Cause there's, 
There's a light in me
That shines brightly
They can try, 
But they can't take that away from me!!!
