You should not allow yourself to be pegged to someone in that his attention means a lot to you. Your existence is not entrenched in the approval of any human being. If these people can't appreciate your gestures and love then you should consider moving away from him or her to clear or rid your memory of them.
Not base your existence on the approval of that person or any other. Live your life and do the best you can. If they are to blind to see you for who and what you are then you are focusing YOUR attention on the wrong person.
