Is it the company he keeps, the amount in his bank account? Is it how he dresses or the car he drives? Are you only worth something if everyone else says you are? Maybe it is how much you love, how you are beloved by others. Treat each day as you last, experience it to the fullest. The day where you learn nothing new is a day truly wasted. Why do something that does not make you laugh, or cry, or love? For what little it is worth: I am 22, a male, and I live in Texas, sadly.
