Do you feel useless?

The younger people realise that the world is full of huge problems, which they dream of solving, but no one is interested in their views.
‘You don’t know what the world is really like,’ they are told. ‘Listen to your elders and then you’ll have a better idea of what to do.’
The older people have gained in experience and maturity, they have learned about life’s difficulties the hard way, but when the moment comes for them to teach these things, no one is interested.
‘The world has changed,’ they are told. ‘You have to keep up to date and listen to the young.’
That feeling of uselessness is no respecter of age and never asks permission, but corrodes people’s souls, repeating over and over:
‘No one is interested in you, you’re nothing, the world doesn’t need your presence.’
They don’t understand that religion was created in order to share the mystery and to worship, not to oppress or convert others.
The greatest manifestation of the miracle of God is life.
Walk neither faster nor slower than your own soul.
Because it is your soul that will teach you the usefulness of each step you take.
Sometimes taking part in a great battle will be the thing that will help to change the course of history. But sometimes you can do that simply by smiling, for no reason, at someone you happen to pass in the street.
Without intending to, you might have saved the life of a complete stranger, who also thought he was useless and might have been ready to kill himself, until a smile gave him new hope and confidence.

– Paulo Coelho

Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) rehabilitation is a realistic and cost-efficient alternative to extend the life of existing sewer lines. This procedure offers rehabilitation for pipes without the need to dig into the existing pipeline.

An interesting discussion will probably be worth comment. I’m sure that you ought to write much more about this topic, may possibly not become a taboo subject but usually everyone is not enough to communicate on such topics. To the next. Cheers
