"You need to realize that where you are today does not have to represent where you can be in the future. It’s easy to feel hopeless when you are surrounded by people and situations that constantly highlight your insecurities or seemingly validate your fears. When you look in the mirror, it might be hard to recognize yourself separate from the other person whose comments and actions have stripped away your confidence, downplayed your goals and dreams and caused you to live a life that you never envisioned. But know that you are capable of reclaiming the life you want—you just have to find your voice and not be distracted by the opinions, desires and demands of others."

Eh? Dad, I was asking for your opinion not your permission.
