Don’t let anybody bring you down. Wear your chin up. Don’t let them tell you you can’t do it or you’re not good enough. Don’t listen to them when they try to silence you. Stand up. You are worthy. Because God made you so. You are stronger than you think, wiser than you know and you have the willpower to succeed. So stand up for yourself and prove them wrong. Set the limits now to how you want to be treated from this point on. Let them see you are somebody to respect. You will not fall into their game because you are not a victim. Show them that they’re messing with the wrong kid. And it is then and only then that you will gain this respect.
Let it empower you. Let it empower others. This is what having a strong personality is like. This is what being strong minded is like. Having a presence. Becoming somebody. You wanted them to respect you? Make them respect you. Earn it.
