Re: Worthwhile/valuable/useful - are you?

Can't say I've ever thought about any of that. Nor do I intend to.
This.

I don't have children nor do I want to have any. My job is meaningful to me but mundane in the big scheme of things. I don't do any particularly selfless acts and my contribution to the world will be minimal at best. So one could say I might as well stop here But I don't and won't.

I don't have a particular need to define my worth or value and agree with others that it can be a dangerous question to ponder in many ways. I even feel it's counterproductive - too many people focus on how special they presumably are, when in reality most are by definition average. Of course that doesn't make them useless or worthless, but very, very, very few will do anything in their life that leaves a significant mark way beyond their immediate environment.
