    Im pretty sure ive always been aware of this....even as a child. But ive never understood the worry.

    So you aren't important. But hey, guess what? You are.

    It's called perspective and it defines us in our short* time on this planet.


    * Or long....which depends on your perspective.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I'd hope that, whoever I was, I'd be able make the most out of myself and be happy.

    If we'd be happy if we were someone else, then we may as well be happy with ourselves, too.

    How do you know this?

    that your destiny is that of every other person's, death, and in the meantime all everyone else is doing is trying to come to terms with this realization.
    That's not destiny, that's just the currently-known ending of our destiny. An ending that is so obvious, so why is it worth dwelling on when there is destiny left to be lived?

    It's a sad time in life when you realize you're a nobody, and even if others say you have some kind of value it means nothing because you know they have no idea what they are talking about.
    Maybe they don't know what they are talking about. Or you don't. Or neither or both. How are you so sure that you are the one who's right?

    You grow up thinking you'll be an amazing person....that you'll achieve great things. Then you grow up and realize that you're just another nobody in a sea full of nobodies.
    Nah, I was quite aware of the "sea of nobodies" potential from an early age and knew and still know that that simply must not happen. I've always been concerned about it and dissatisfied with my current being but what does this mean for the future? Absolutely nothing.

    You are obviously someone, just build upon that....

    On the other hand, no one on the planet is as good at being me than me if that makes any sense. No one has exactly the same combination of strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes and quirks. When you look at it that way, you are special.
    Also consider it doesn't matter if someone is better than you at something, its more to do with the chances and gifts you get handed.
    How you make the most of the opportunities in life which are dealt to you. Some get none, some get few, some get alot.
    You could be the smartest person in the world but born in a country torn by war and find yourself dead before you could show your potential.

    So your reaction to finding out that you're a nobody was to throw yourself off of a bridge?


    , is the first thing I thought of
