I was raised by this saying. Never let anyone who can't even support their own family and lies about heir own life events to trthemselves feel better about their own pathetic life tell you anything about yourself or your family.
Stand for the vulnerable, the weak, the sick, the voiceless, the hated. Stand up to self-rightous hypocrites and hypocrisy of all kinds. Stand for being true to yourself. Stand up for those brave enough to speak uncomfortable truths.
