The Paradox of Uniqueness
What makes a person unique?

Their background, interests, aspirations, or their perspectives on life- well that question is truly paradoxical.

Can a person truly be unique?

I would agree with your statement, but still the action and desire to become unique makes you undistinguishable from the man next to you.

Why must one feel unique to feel special and happy? I think grabbing at reasons to feel unique is a waste of mental energy, because it indicates the person does not recognize his/her value as a human being.

Is uniqueness connected with emotions such as happiness or self-worth?

I can only speak for myself, in saying that I am happy and I understand my worth to the world around me, but I still recognize I am not unique.

Are you happy or special?

In essence every single thing in the universe is unique just by the fact that nothing occupies the same space at any given moment. If there were two identical blue squares set next to each other in a void, each would still be unique as one would be the "right identical blue square" and the other would be the "left identical blue square".
