Took the words right out of my mouth, in a very organized and easy to understand way.

Molly dear, you're not alone!

My .02 cents? Brush this shit off, don't even acknowledge comments like that anymore and instead let yourself shine and show them that life doesn't need to wait for some magic number. You can say a lot with no words at all. <--- That is EXACTLY what I do. And it works
