What Does it Mean to be a Valuable Human Being?

Think the most important thing is to not be totally worthless. That's difficult for some people, but it doesn't have to be so difficult if you just realize how valuable everyone else is.

The most valuable people in this world are each other. None of us is worthless, not even the worst person you ever met. We all have some value to society.

So if you want to be of value, just realize the value in others. It's not that hard. And if you can come to appreciate the value in yourself, then it will be easier for you to appreciate other people as well.

I think that's really the key to being of value, is realizing how valuable everyone else is. And if you can help others realize it too, then even better.

So what about the world in general? What do you think is valuable?

I think the most valuable thing in the world is desire. Without it, we'd have no reason to do anything.

What is value? What should society be like? This question doesn't have a definite answer, but I will try to give an answer anyway.

In the case of value, it is not just about helping others in a direct manner. It's also indirect values that we may have which are not directly related to one another.

For example, a person may have an indirect value of doing well in school. Another person may have an indirect value of going on vacations. These two people aren't directly helping each other by doing what they want to do.

However, if one of them does well in school, it will help him or her get a good job. This person can then afford to go on vacations because of their hard work.

And if the person goes on vacations, then he or she will be happier and more willing to work hard.

So indirectly, they are both helping each other.

I think that the problem may be a misunderstanding of how value is decided. Not everything has inherent value. For example, rocks don't have any inherent value to them. When one creates art it doesn't count for anything until someone views it and decides they like it, or give money in exchange for viewing the art.

Rocks do not have any value unless one finds a use for them. The same goes for everything else in the world. People can only really decide if something has value to them by judging whether or not they find it useful.

Therefore, the problem seems to be that you've been looking for something of value in all the wrong places.

The only way to really find what you're looking for is to stop trying so hard. You must go with the flow and do what makes you happy.

Life is not about what you want, it's about what you get. Your desires will change over time and so must your actions in order to accommodate them.

If you want to be of value, then do what is of value. The world will reward those who are valuable and punish those who aren't.
