U for Unique,U for Useful

I saw this image somewhere on the internet today. It really made me think. A lot.

How many times have we heard someone say "He is special,because he is unique" or "His uniqueness is an asset" or something similar. Special he may be, but being an asset or being useful is questionable and depends on many circumstances. Your uniqueness has nothing to do with how attractive you are, how well you do your job, or how much of an asshole you are. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Your usefulness is probably directly related to how well you fit into the surroundings and work together with others. A square peg amongst thousands of round pegs is unique alright, but it is ineffective when it is put in a round hole. Using your uniqueness to be useful is what matters the most.

I'm better than you

All this talking takes us nowhere
How does it matter? You just don't care
You lied, you cheated, you broke my heart
But everyone had warned me from the start
I guess it was my destiny, or did I err?
I know I should have known far far better
I had painted a beautiful dream for you and me
Its now in pieces, scattered around clumsily
It is all over, I walked in on you two
Getting cozy, there is nothing I can do
I'll get out of this mess my life is now
I will manage, don't ask me how
I will move on and find someone great
My heart will be filled with love and not hate
Good luck, goodbye, I wish you well, I really do
You know why? Because I'm better....
I'm better than you!
