As long as you are trying to be better, it doesn't matter what others say. Your past does not represent you, every day you are born a new person, with new experiences and thoughts. Take into account only what is good for your evolution. Do not allow anyone to block or stagnate you. You have the ability to be better. Do it for yourself and nothing else will be IMportant. There are people who need to know their IMproved version in order to IMprove themselves.
