If you are using society, partners, family and friends as measuring sticks for your worth then I might offer that you are erring. Self worth comes from inside which then builds the kind of self-respect you eventually come to expect and realize you deserve. If you are old enough to have seen the darker aspects of our world then you know it operates on ignorance much more than it should. By using it as any kind of metric for your sense of value you are doing yourself a great disservice.

Instead look for people that like you are finding their value on the inside and see themselves with a level of honesty and authenticity that allows them to then see yours.
After all, what would the neighbors think.
