One great thing about being made to feel like a scum is that once you get
back on your dignified feet, you learn to trust your own judgment more than
anybody else's.  Experience of abuse under someone else's hand makes you
realize that you're better off putting yourself in your own hands.  After
that self-esteem is diamond strong, nobody can say anything that will make
you doubt yourself.  If you are in error, it is because you have figured out
for yourself that you are in error, instead of someone else making you feel
like you're in error.
