What’s your value

Posted: March 7, 2015 in Uncategorized

One of my most favorite freshman television series, “Agent Carter”, gave me one of my most favorite quotes. “I know my value. Anyone else’s opinion doesn’t really matter.” Our protagonist, Peggy Carter, a special secret agent post WW II, makes the statement when she is pressed by a fellow secret agent about accolades poured on their boss for the, heroic actions she accomplished. 

So this show is great! The first season is on the bag and I cannot wait to watch the second season! Secondly, that quote is powerful. I love this quote. We can find ourselves surrounded by competition. Work, play and sometimes even at home. Competition can be healthy, however one should never forget how trivial it is. Your value should be defined by you not others through silly competition. 

It seems obvious, but it is often forgotten. You are more than a test number or a place in a game. You are a person who is important special and needed. You may feel worthless. This can happen, if you do you should get help. Depression is a serious medical condition treated with medicine. If you are not suffering from depression but merely suffering from a case of blahs or being down in the dumps perhaps an encouraging word can help. 

The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

-Barack Obama
