Then you realize how everything relates to how you value yourself. How everything can become a test of confidence. You can’t get your value from pleasing others, because you can’t please everybody. You can’t get your value from being the best, because there’s always someone bound to be better or worse than you. Everything boils down to trusting yourself. Because when you trust yourself, you don’t mind if someone does not like you (or your work), you don’t feel bad if someone did better than you.
