    This article has been very helpful to me. I was disrespected by someone tonight and I became really upset. After reading this article, I realized that the person who disrespected is insecure and I don’t need to pay attention to what she says or let her actions bring me down. I am an individual born free and with the right to be happy. Mr. Chuck Gallozi has opened my eyes. I thank him for that. I won’t let meaningless words that come from people who have no importance in my life rule my life.

    Chuck Gallozzi your article has helped me immensely!!!!

    I am an artist and just begining to submit my work. Then I began to worry beause I didn’t think enough people liked my work.

    But your article taught me to think, “So what! Who cares if others like it. I love it!”

    Your Mona-Lisa analogy was memorable too!
