"Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are."
— Marianne Williamson
No matter how bad things are there is still always at least one tiny thing that is good. Self realization and self worth is so important and when people try and put you down and stifle you it's your job to lift yourself back up. When you can't count on or trust anyone, you will still always have yourself. it's a valuable lesson to learn, as well as remember.
