I wish to thank you for saying this, sincerely. I have never quite heard this phrased this way, and now that I have heard it echoed outside my head, I must ask you a philosophical question that perhaps is inappropriate here. (I don't have any other place to ask it, unfortunately.)
You are not important. You are not interesting. What you think does not benefit other people.
If these things are true, then what possible purpose could I serve in the great chain of humanity? If I am not important, why am I here? If I am not interesting, why bother at all with me? And if what I think doesn't benefit people, then why should I bother to think? And, more importantly, what can I do so that I am important, so that I am interesting, and so that my thoughts do benefit other people (and hopefully myself as well)?
I've never been able to ask this question in quite this way because I've never seen the statement made quite this way, but I've asked it of so many people I lose count. Roughly every reply given to me boiled down roughly to either What else is there to do? or else You are important, trust me! but nothing quite stops this nagging sensation that you're right. I keep feeling that those things you said are absolutely true, and I feel that they're true most of the time.
So, I non-sarcastically ask -- what do I do about it?
