Heather, welcome aboard.

But...

Yes, let's use one of the myriad number of belief systems in the world as a crutch again. The meaning each of us is meant to find lies within ourselves. Baphomet is right in that it can be a competition, but the things we are competing with are not other people, but when our worst selves and best selves collide. The worst self is the one with feelings of doubt and angst that tends to hold us back. All humans have that side. The best side, which all human beings also have, includes your sense of purpose, of belief in yourself. You can't let other people affect you. You can't let your circumstances bring you down. You have to learn independence and have the inner conviction to simply be who you are.
