Gettingby is right, Finally Happy,
I would add to her thread that, when people speak, they don't reveal
the real truth of a matter, they really reveal more of themselves than anything else. Each time your mother puts you down, she is revealing part of herself that she is unleashing from within. You're a smart girl to realize that, especially at a young age.
I've always felt that we have to live by our own deepest principles and
disregard who someone else thinks we are. You should never judge yourself based on another's opinion. In fact, you should never judge yourself at all; just evaluate who you are based on your
own principles and live by them. That's one way to become independent and to be really free from the baggage of negativism tossed your way.
That's going to place a big responsibility on your shoulders, though. You're going to have to be sure that you make the best decisions you can abide by and live according to the truth as you see it and be honest about
your selections and decisions. It's so easy to make mistakes when we are learning to live life. Be sincere with yourself and others and let go of the things and people who are insincere and
life or you.
Be good and live responsibly.
