    Am I essential?

    I am sitting at home, essentially we get to choose our prison for the next month or months. After pondering things I have realized my life work is not essential. I am non-essential. My life will wither away into an abyss of nothingness.

    I finally realize how insignificant I am.
    Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there?”

    You're at the threshold of Existentialism. You might want to read Camus' long essay entitled "The Myth of Sisyphus" while housebound; he has some advice for you..

    Work is the least essential thing about you or any person...King Solomon knew that...

    “The greatest futility!” says the congregator,
    “The greatest futility! Everything is futile!”
    "What does a person gain from all his hard work
    At which he toils under the sun?" Ecclesiastes 1:2,3

    He also discovered the one thing that is not futile...a good name with God...

    "A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death is better than the day of birth." Ecclesiastes 7:1
    "I hate falsehood—I detest it—I love your law." Psalm 119:163

    For me, my work is not the source of how I value myself. I am essential to my wife, and she to me. That is what I consider being essential.
