What are the best times of your life so far? What are the worst? Why are they the best and worst?

I've realized that no one can really give you happiness. If you are satisfied and happy with yourself, even if you're not perfect, it is truly a blessing. A couple of years ago, I was doing very poorly in school, no one paid attention to me, and I had a crush on a jerk who broke my heart and backstabbed me repeadedly. Girls hated me and backbit me also, but you know what? Through it all, I didn't give a shit because I was happy enough with myself to know that I didn't need those people. All I needed was myself, and that grass isn't always greener on the other side like I thought it was. Even people that I envied, or who envied me and tried to convince me that I was unimportant, I realized didn't have as much as I thought they had. They, too, along with every other human being on this earth, had problems. I didn't care at all, and it seemed as though people knew that, and would get depressed over it. However, now, a lot of things worry me, like a particular person who honestly has hurt me, that I wouldn't have let hurt me before. I guess I just gotta love myself like I did before and stop depending on other people's approval. I have to approve myself. The days when i didn't care were the best, and the happiest. Nowadays, things aren't so great.
