All about being useless

According to Bruce Lee "Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is specifically your own." But how can you determine what is your own if you feel that you make no sense? If you feel rejected most of the time? If you feel like you are an outcast? If you feel like an idiot giving so much effort but no one seems to appreciate? Even though you try to do your best just to make them happy, sometimes they don't even care or worse they don't even bother to take a glimpse to the things that you do. Individuals who do not achieve anything good are considered by most people as useless. Because most of the time the rich and educated people judge the poor and illiterate individuals just because they are below their levels. If you are useless, people really make you feel that you are a big disappointment. It also feels bad that you are always being rejected and belittled, even though you know for yourself that you can make greater things. You are rejected by people just because they always think that you are useless since they have known you before as a person who does not achieve anything good at all. They don't even give you another chance to prove yourself -the best in you. If that happens your insecurity comes next. You will feel insecure in anything you do, your confidence will be affected and you will be shy and scared to show your real capacity of accomplishing things. With these insecurities are different problems that you might encounter like having no friends to trust, no friends to rely on when you are in need -it seems like you'll have a lifetime. It is also possible that a useless person can have a mental and emotional disorder because of insecurity and depression of being labeled as a "useless person." It is a hard and bad feeling, but you should not stop at that pathetic situation. So make a change and do believe in yourself. Don't be affected by people who make you feel that you are useless. Just do what is right and make your life better.

If someone feels that way, something has to be done to boost one's self-esteem. Self-esteem is very important in a person, it is an innate need.

Every person has it's own purpose. I can say even the least of a creature has it's own use in its existence. This is my guiding principle in life that no matter how harsh things is, I usually ask for help, others advice maybe, just to alleviate my suffering, or just a personal prayer will do. People need people in order to survive in this world. May we have courage and wisdom to face this life, for life is too short to be wasted. Thanks and good luck

Everything in this world has been made because it has some sort of usefulness no matter what it could be.Man was given the mind to make a decision whatever he do it has a reason.How can you say you are useless when you have the ability to think what is wright and wrong?Do not accused yourself of being useless because of just a simple reason that you have taken your view from a useless person,that is just a reason of a foolish person.You must think of something useful from a worthless thing so that you can use it to survive just anywhere you like to go.
