I do not look outward for acknowledgment but inward. It is my confidence and self esteem that I thrive on. They are what confirms I am worthy of great things in life, not the opinions of other. When others tell me I am unworthy or that I may not be able to succeed at something I just laugh because their negativity pales in comparison to my belief in myself. Others will never deter me from achieving my dreams. Because I know who I am and what I can accomplish and that is anything I put my mind to.
