Just thought I would share a thought that crossed my mind. A lot of people here, myself included seem to feel they are worthless, better off dead etc. Yet on this board, there is such a great array of opinions on various issues - strong opinions I might add! I feel that it is these opinions and values, which each living person holds that gives us an inherent worth. So long as we have our own unique views, we are worthwhile - and that the real challenge is to just express such views, in real life, with total honesty at all times. This is obviously extremely hard for some, myself included, especially when such views are often not within the mainstream. But I genuinely feel that being able to express yourself with compete honesty is the key to happiness. I feel it is the foundation of any worthwhile relationship - this abilility to show your true colours without the fear of rejection, judgement or embarrassment. So basically so long as we can be ourselves and give real opinions as opposed to being robotic yes men, we are worthwhile. It is simply about learning to express them, no matter how odd they may seem, without fear. This is the key to contentment in my eyes.
