If you have no love in your life, no amount of money or fame will give you meaning or value in your life

Bullshit. Then according to you my life has no meaning or value. I also don't have the love you crave. The last time I kissed a girl was over 25 years ago. I will not bother going into differences in our details as it is irrelevant. I gave up the pursuit of love as I felt it was unattainable. And I worked to build myself a better life but one without love. Is it the life I would have ideally wanted? No not even close. But I value it as it is what I made and it is mine.
