    Agreed. The only thing I disagree with is the last line, "everybody will respect you."

    I think it's better to view it as, "What everybody thinks of me is none of my business". That fits better with the rest of it. A sort of self containment.

    On second thought, maybe not. Too individualistic. The idea of not needing anybody is a little cold.
