Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

"The idea is to rescue myself from the role of a victim. That I have a choice left. Though I can't change what has happened, I can choose how to react. And I don't want to spend the rest of my life being bitter and locked up." smile.gif

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

It's not what happens to us, but our response to it, that hurts us...in fact our most difficult experiences become the crucibles that forge our character and develop the internal powers, the freedom to handle the difficult circumstances in the future and inspire others to do so as well.Covey

I look at this when I have 'why me' moments and 'when will all this end'....I know I will be the stronger person at the end of all this xx clover.gif

"It belongs to the very substance of nonviolence never to destroy or damage another person's feeling of self-worth, even an opponent's. We all need, constantly, an advance of trust and affirmation." -bernard haring

I don't remember where I heard this, but it has me wondering about myself lately:

"It's not what you have, but what you can give"
