My best friend, R, says that "no one has the right to make you feel small". Even though I agree with this quote 110%, it can be hard not to question your abilities when someone you're supposed to look up to tells you that you are not capable of accomplishing your dreams.
In moments like these, I want you all to know that you are what you believe. At the end of the day, regardless of all the negative things you've been told, you are still the unique and amazing person you have always been. Don't ever let anyone bring you down, especially when they are oblivious to who you truly are.
