How do you value yourself?

There are so many people out there who really doesn’t know what they are worth. Their self-esteem is below zero, they feel they don’t matter. I can’t blame them, for society these days tell us that we are a single-celled organism that has gone crazy, so to speak. With no intention or purpose, we have arrived at our destionation in evolution, the human species. You are nothing, you are just another step in evolution, if you die, you’re just a weak link in the chain. (The -if- part was ironic, because we all have to face death at some point in our lives) There is no rhyme or reason to you existing at all. The whole point of you being here at all is to make the most of it. You can do and take whatever you want. Or can you?

There is SO many things that goes wrong when people fail to recognize what a human being is really worth. I won’t go in to detail, but I can mention Hitler. How did he measure human worth? Hitler degraded Jews, made them worth less than dogs, so he then “justified” killing millions of jews in the consentration-camps. He got human worth seriously messed up.

What about slavery in America and Africa some sixty years ago? How was that possible? The white man announced that his race was superior to the black. And he therefore was entitled to make whatever he wished of them, because they weren’t worth as much.

In modern times, we think we are done with slavery and degrading people. After all, The Declaration Of Independece states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. So why is human trafficking so common these days. Why are SO many babies being aborted? Oh, yes, I said it. I don’t think abortion is right, not at all.

The world seems to agree now that all men  are created equal, and have a right to life, but… yes, there is a but there that we don’t see. You wan’t to know what the last part says? Here it comes: WHEN IT SUITS ME! Haven’t you noticed? Guys who say that human trafficking is so wrong, and then some late saturday night evening finds a prostitute because he’s had some tough times with women. Or the pregnant mom who visits the doctor for som tests, and finds out that the baby has down’s syndrom. That was inconvenient.. “but since the baby is still a lump of flesh and not fully developed”,  she decides to take an abortion. This might come out as a bit hard. I’m not trying to judge anybody, but since we are being bombarded in media and all over now with these false statements about human worth, we are deceived into making decisions we shouldn’t do. What I’m trying to get to is what it all comes down to: What is a human being worth? People have been trying to come up with an answer to that question for a long time, and many have failed miserably..

Let me clarify this right now: You have so much worth, you can’t be bought or used, even though many fail to see that, but that goes for every other person out  there too.  Not until you understand how wonderful you are, how there is none like you out there, you have a distorted view of things and the people around you, but when you do, you’ll start treating people with the respect and dignity they deserve.
