It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks.
Are you affected by what others think and say about you?
Has it ever occurred to you that all these does not change the fact about who you really are?
Perhaps you may want to say this to yourself whenever others judge you;
"No matter what you say or do to me, I'm still [...]
You can be an echo of your past, or the glory of your future.
Past is connected to future through the present.
At this very moment, at every moment,
you are choosing to carry on the past with all its troubles on your shoulders,
OR to let it go and see bright future pull you forward.
