It is a great reminder of the difference our approach to others makes. I am sure we can all find an example of somebody who has truly believed in us and the difference it has made to our own confidence and ability to succeed.

Viktor Frankl was a survivor of the Nazi concentration camps where he formed many of his views including that we cannot avoid suffering but we can chose how to cope with it. His book Man's Search for Meaning sets out his theory known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning"). It holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit if what we personally find meaningful.
