“We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”

- Charles R. Swindoll

The past does not make you who you are today. It is up to you to decide what makes you today. It's not impossible to continue to be the same person. There are people who want to remain static. Permanent to who they are without believing in growth or needing to harness their unknown potential. Of their own choosing. Please be kind. That is their choice and it is VALID! And there are people who want to change. To grow. Reaching for the things that others do not believe in. With that desire there will be people who can not see or understand that need, that passion to grow. It is disappointing to come so far and have someone yank us back by the neck and say: "You are always going to be the same. Accept it!" And it is disappointing. This disappoints me when people judge myself and others that I care about in this manner. You are not alone. I have a strong reaction too. But honestly, you can't worry what anyone says. If you've convinced yourself of who you are, which I know you have, that's all that matters. Attitude is all you have. A great one goes so much further than a bad one.
