If you are tired, chill and rest. Do not ever quit. Winners are not meant to set an inverse example.
If you are ill-treated or ridiculed, it says nothing about you; it simply speaks a lot about the person afflicting it.
People do not be difficult or in their shells because they want to, they go there because they do not know how to lovingly get out of their own way.
The reality is this: if you work upon yourself, do the inner work, create the right environment and let go of trivia, you are going to have an amazing life. In the absence of the above, you are going to give your power to others to make yourself happy.
