Another Paradox

It is one's absence, rather than presence, that is capable of making people realize one's value.

one should be confident enough of the value that one brings to the world around.

dont look at others for confirmation of the same.

that way we can avoid getting into the vicious cycle of depressions/excessive happiness.

true. very valid and essential. somehow words of praise convert everything intangible till then into tangible and solid things - the writing is on the wall and that hits you harder. i have a long way to go on that. having said that, i must also add that the feeling, fortunately, is a temporary phenomenon. another good thing is that one such strong experience can help one recall it whenever one finds oneself falling into the same trap in the future.

I agree with what both of you have said.

Self-confidence and self-esteem are the most misunderstood things in the world in my opinion.

I mean it's very difficult to really know if you are confident in yourself with out first having that confidence tested.

The only way is to "know that you know that you know."
