“Somewhere along the way, I learned something that I think is a valuable lesson, and it certainly makes life easier. I learned that it’s not our job to make people like us if they don’t want to.

And um, I guess every time someone be real mean to me, I try to make a mental note that I would never intentionally make anyone else feel the way that they’ve made me feel, and if you did that I think that we could all make the world just a little bit nicer place to live.”
