You are what you make of yourself. There will always be those that will tear you down, call you names seek to defame you, they are not important. What is important is what you choose to do with your lot in life; wether you should falter and accept their terms of bondage to a label, or if you rise up and break the mould into which they would have you caste. Those that would malign you only do so out of fear and spite; Fear for what you might attain without their label, and spite, for those who labeled them.
