Here is a simple advice that many may not take into account: NEVER underestimate anyone.
Sometimes you think you know a person enough to be able to judge, but you are wrong.
Although I am only sixteen, I have heard many adults getting wrong underestimating a person and by that, I have learnt that we should not judge at all.
As far as I’m concerned if there’s one thing I hate is that someone underestimates me.
It makes me furious, but it also makes me want to show and prove what I am capable of and silence anyone who dares to criticize me.
If you are a victim of this, the only thing to do is to say nothing. Whether it is a teacher, a friend, an enemy or anyone, just ignore them. Let people talk. You do not have to waste your time and energy for people who think you are incapable.
Only YOU know what you are able to do, and with time and work you will show to all those who underestimate you that they were wrong about you.
And only you will be the winner.
« Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive. »
