Personal Quote:

[on the person who helped his self-acceptance] My mother. She was always there for me, especially at the times I needed her most. She showed me how important I was to her and gave me those important feelings of self-worth. It's so important to love yourself. Life is a roller coaster and it's easy to lose your balance.
