I don't know why Ted had low self esteem - he was so lovely and he had a good job and good friends - just goes to show that sometimes what is going on inside someone is different to what they show the world or that we truly don't know what people are ever really thinking.

That’s very true. You could have everything and still feel crappy.

He took the only job he felt like he could get, though. That's why he's so happy to branch out with the porn website. But yes, the external isn't what validates us or makes us happy. If we don't have self love or esteem on the inside, nothing can change that.

Very true both of you and you're also right about he took the job he thought was right and had good benefits and everything but it certainly didn't fulfil him.

Mhmmm. But we're conditioned to think that we need lots of money and stuff and THAT'S how to be happy. But I won't get all soapbox-y.

I'm currently on season 4

Very true though - ads on tv, ads on billboards, ads in magazines - just everywhere it's telling you to buy more, have more, get another one or you won't be happy without it

Yay for Ted being happy

And yeah, they shove it down your throat, how you "should" be happy.

You can never acquire self-love and esteem/respect from anywhere outside yourself.
