    this was posted on another forum i go on. i dunno it spoke to me...

    A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, Who would like this $20 bill?

    Hands started going up. He said, I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.
    He proceeded to crumple the $20 dollar bill up.
    He then asked, Who still wants it?
    Still the hands were up in the air.

    Well, he replied, What if I do this. And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
    He picked it up, now crumpled, and dirty. Now who still wants it?
    Still the hands went into the air.

    My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth £20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

    Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by WHO WE ARE.

    You are special - Don't EVER forget it. You may never know the lives you touch, the hurting hearts you speak to, or the hope that you can bring.

    Count your blessings, not your problems.
    Never be afraid to try something new.

    That's a nice analogy. I'd like to add a quote:

    I've felt that way about people quite a few times. It's frustrating when you can see all these good things in people that they cannot see in themselves...
