I grew up surrounded by people who told me not to try so hard, that I'd only be disappointed. For a while this drove me down, I believed those patronising voices and would never hope as I was sure I'd only fail. As I got older I developed a quite persistance and determination to break the mould I was born into. I began to realize my own worth and strengths.

i will succeed not only to prove those overbearing people of my childhood wrong, but because I know I can.

I'm so glad that you all feel that way. I feel the same way too. I just really need to work on my confidence.

I share the same, I don't know how'll get there I just know I will...

you know what, i think that you have faith in yourself. that takes courage... as long as you keep your eye on your goal and keep working towards it, un-derailed, i believe you can do it.<br />

i have a big goal too. it's ambitious. sometimes i get scared or worried that i might be wasting my time. but ultimately i keep trying and bettering my skills. i know that my effort will pay off. i don't know how i know. <br />

i just know.
