My mother told me that her niece (my female cousin) was recently questioned by all three when she was abroad about the unusual amount of new clothes she was buying. She eventually admitted to having sex with a few of her guy friends that she's distant with to get spare cash.

Now I have NO problem with that but it just natures way of saying "You're completely and utterly worthless Eric". My cousin already has a job and she can sell her body (which I have no problem with by the way, legalize prostitution) and I can't do any of those things. I am literally worthless as a black man.

So you're saying you're worth nothing because you cannot sell your body?

Hmm think about it that way: only a small percentage of people would be able to sell their body so why would that render all other useless? I mean there are tons of different qualities/traits you could try and measure worth of your life with, why choose this one exactly? To me it sounds very unusual, most people feel worthless because they measure themselves in success, amount of friends etc.

I don’t get the sense that you feel you are worthless because you haven’t been paid for sex, but more that you had another reminder that someone else is able to succeed in a way you think you can’t succeed. Not sure if I’m reading that right, but I do understand the feeling of worthlessness. I think our sense of our own worth is not a true reflection of our worth, a person’s worth is determined by the degree to which that person feels they have worth. Nothing more or less. In the existential sense, none of us has any more worth than anything else, as we are all composed of atoms. It is fortunate for humans they we are at the top of the food chain, and that gives us an elevated sense of worth (artificial, I believe). Unfortunate for humans is that we tend compare ourselves to other humans, many of whom demonstrate signs of greater success than ourselves (depending on our goals and measure of success). OP, if you can stop comparing yourself to others, you may have the ticket, it’s just a hard ticket to find.

You're are right about the success but honestly, the only reason I'm comparing myself to others is because I'm constantly told by parents that "You're situation isn't unique, we've all struggled". But then I look for something redeemable in myself and I can honestly say there is not a single thing

Most woman CAN sell their bodies. Obviously tonnes of guys like fit women, but BBW fetishes are about as common as it gets.

I just saw the part where you said you're a black man (I need to learn how to read :( )

Like you, I have also been annoyed/depressed at the fact women can have sex for money (no matter what they look like) but for men it's almost impossible. Plenty of women like black men though (or is that only the case in porn and in the real world it's totally different?).
