The people in your life who either:
A) Have the power to completely ruin you and your self esteem. They make you feel like everything is your fault, and you're worthless... OR...

B) The people in your life who love you unconditionally and make you feel like you can do no wrong. They are the ultimate supporter and friend.
With parents you're basically playing a lottery game you consistently have tickets to that you've never purchased. What you grow up with shapes you... but how you handle it defines you. Choose wisely
