And you don't need reassurance from anyone. If you waited for everyone to approve or to coddle you, you will live a long and lonely life. No one ever approves of anything that I do - until I become successful at it, of course. Then everyone acts like they had a hand in it... Whatever, just do what you want to do and try to not rely on others to give you what you need or to make you feel good about yourself. Like the comedian Katt Williams said: how can I mess up your self esteem? it's called self-esteem - esteem of your motherf*king self!
