I don't want to live others' lives, and I don't want someone to live my life for me. My life should never be dictated by those whose opinions, after some rational thinking, deserves not a mint of consideration, or are simply out of malice, jealousy or other ulterior motives. And my life shall never be restricted by circumstances, however hostile. Excellence doesn't necessarily mean success, esp. in material terms, but it surely comes from passion. No one shall rob you of your self esteem if you respect yourself by following your heart and go an extra mile.
