True value has no $ value or brand name or pretty face or fame. You can be anonymous, you can be un-trendy, you can have $0 to your name, you can live in your parents' basement, you can literally have no worldly possessions other than the clothes on your back. You can be all of those things and have so much value as a human being! Value has everything to do with your mind. If you let others determine value, especially your value as a person, you are selling yourself short on life. Think about it, there are so many "famous people" that have either killed themselves or gotten depressed and ended up in rehab centers over and over again. They went from having a passion to being turned into glorified monkeys jumping through the ring of fire. My grandparents died without a cent to their names. In fact, my grandfather had debt up to his eyeballs. They both lived with so much love for their family / other people and so much passion for life that it didn't matter that they were broke. They valued their own lives more than $ and they didn't let the # on their bank account determine how they felt about themselves. I'm not saying that it's bad to have $ at all. What I am saying is to honestly ask yourself: Are you truly happy in your life? Do you feel good about yourself? What do you feel signifies value in a person? Are you the one determining your value? I know how it feels to hate myself and to feel worthless. I know how it feels to think that I have nothing to offer to the world. I do have things to offer the world: love, passion, empathy, kindness, friendship, a renewed and positive mindset. I know that you have things to offer the world too. Love yourself and work on your self esteem. You are worth it!
