What are you worth?

How do we measure our worth?  Is it in the money we earn or the family to which we are born?  Is it how well we embody the qualities that our culture considers important? 

As a teenager manoeuvring the harsh landscape of school, I thought maybe my worth had something to do with popularity.  If other people thought I was worth something, then surely that meant I was worth something.
