Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself
When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you.
About all you can do in life is be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won’t like you at all and always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else. Be who you are in any place you find yourself.
