I remember in my teens when my Sunday school teacher was driving me to some function, and he said to me, "You're going to do great things." I've had teachers be very supportive of me, and see greatness in me that, for some reason, I didn't see then and still have trouble seeing it now. It takes a while to make peace with yourself, to fully understand who you are. You have to strip away the things that people have told you through the years to find the true you. I'm still stripping away, and finding that I'm fine as I am. Just like that.
