One thing I’ve come to realize that people who are not doctors can make you just as strong as a doctor. I’m not even only talking about friends and people who support you. But now that I think about it I realize that some of the people who treated me the worst actually did a lot for me. It must be very nice but also I think a bit of a shame if everyone praises you and cheers you on for your entire life.
In my life people have attacked my character and integrity, tried to put me in my place, and outright insulted me. To those people I say thank you because when someone tries to do that to me now I fight back. I speak up and I defend myself.
So people who uplift you and build you up are essential but people who put you down and oppress you are necessary.
