Bit of a strange thought for me, but I was looking through photos on my phone and I saw pics from years ago of me and some ******s who hate me for no reason (yeh these people posed as 'mates' before). This got me quite angry thinking about them and has sort of lifted my mood at the same time, thinking about how I'm doing good things in life atm. I don't know if I could stretch this as far to say 'they motivate me' but they do get me thinking positively about my future to say the least, and the fact that I've cut these ****s off makes me want to achieve more and more in life. You got a similar story or thought, or disagree? Post away.

Yes, I do have stories like that. People who claimed to be my friends, but at the same time, ****ged me off behind my back and made me worth nothing, said I was stupid, would amount to nothing in life because I was deaf. They were all at a grammar school and made me feel rather bad about my poor background. When I think of the experiences I had with them, it does give me a massive fuel/energy to do some work to better places to prove them wrong.

My History Teacher detested me. He always moaned about me to the class, telling them I was always daydreaming and lazy etc.

Anyway, his hatred for me sort of spurred me on. It made me want to get good grades and be more attentive so I could prove them all wrong.

And I did

Hmm, I seem to have a very similar train of thought to you. I think it's a case of carrying on/not letting them get you down and then in the end being able to come away with the knowledge that you've done your best and achieved far more than they have.

Haha not really for me but I know someone who when she used to do chemitry at school was told she would "get nowhere in life and was destined to fail". She's a doctor now, and that teacher actually told her she'd never be a doctor as well and generally discouraged her.
Coincidentally, the consultant she was placed to work with also told her she was destined to fail and would never become a doctor. But well she is a fully qualified one now.. strangely. She seems to piss off alot of people.

People who hate me dont motivate me at all but they dont hold me back. I just dont associate with those who dislike me, and i know dislike me, as its just far easier that way.

Yes, I was told I should not consider doing A-level music at all because I was going to fail music GCSE, I didn't (at the time) have grade5 piano and I'd inevitably fail A-level. Within 6months I'd got a merit for grade5 piano (having spent only 6months preparing for the exam where I'd take a year normally), I passed GCSE music with an A (one of only 5 people to get an A in a group of 500 yr11's) and I went on to pass A-level music, not with as fantastic a grade but I made it. Without this man telling me that I was rubbish, I would not have picked music.
