"Progress is impossible without change & those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything." - George Bernard Shaw This is among my favorite sayings. Inability to change, reconsider or rethink is a true sign of iGNORANCE.
When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.
