Discover Your Mother
Before she was my mother, my mother suffered terrible shyness. The runt of 8 kids, she was ignored by her family, made fun of by kids because her teeth were crooked, until she saved up enough of her own money to get braces on her teeth. After she became my mom, she took me and my sister to the dentist all the time!
The best piece of advice she ever gave me was: Always be with people who are kind.
