Some people will go to great lengths to hurt and degrade you, which is very sad. Don't let them steal your joy. Keep moving forward with grace and honesty. Always have faith and believe in yourself. Also, as hard as it may be, pray for those people who attack your character as a human being. By doing so, you no longer let them live rent free in your thoughts and feelings. Give it to God.
It's called confidence -- in your ability to give it your BEST shot: "Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know." ~ Charles Kingsley
