The struggle for Self Confidence
Of all the battles you fight, this is the most difficult and important. Throughout your life people will step on your path and intrude on your way of life.
Summon your courage and find your self confidence. Life is too short to have someone riding on your back, directing your moves.
The ancient Chinese poet and philosopher Lao Tzu said:
"Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her."
Define your value system and beliefs carefully, and then stand by them. Maintaining an open mind is positive, but not so open that people push you around and mess with your self identity.
May you find peace and happiness in your rebellion.
