The thing is, at the end of the day you still have to face yourself.

When you please others in hopes of being accepted, you lose you self-worth in the process.

Life can be tough, but it's tougher if you're stupid. You think you got problems? Get in my private jet and we'll go to Somalia or Rwanda. I'll drop you off in the middle of Baghdad.

Ask yourself: was there anything I could have done to prevent the situation? If the answer is yes, do something now and become a better person for it.

You're Generation Next. Cowboy up. We're supposed to expect greatness from you. You wanna be great, you gotta be great in everything you do every day. Righteousness always prevails. If you're good-hearted and good-headed, no matter what happens to you, you will prevail.

You can't treat me this way.

A Man Named Dave.

Whatever you do for the sole purpose of having others admire you, your efforts will most likely be in vain.

If people have a basic understanding of right from wrong, possess a strong desire to better themselves and persist in there cause, they can break the chain of any negative environment.
